DelVal Turners meets either in-person at the Morestown Friends School or virtually using Zoom on the 2nd Tuesday of each month. Meeting topics include show and tells, demonstrations, and discussions on various turning related subjects, such as tool sharpening, sanding, finishing, chucks, jigs, marketing your crafts etc. New members are encouraged to contribute new ideas to help create an interesting and challenging program. Our demonstrations are most often given by nationally and internationally renowned turners and artists.



Our remote/Zoom meetings start at 6:30 PM with a social 30 minutes.  The meeting starts at 7PM.  We are planning for more face to face meetings to take place at the Morrestown Friends School.  


OTHER EVENTS: Philip Hauser runs a great hands on open house at his workshop on the  3rd Tuesday of each month. The open house is an informal setting where members discuss different issues such as tool use, tool sharpening,  wood preparation, and turning techniques. Phil and other members often demonstrate these techniques. See Member's Area for Phil's contact information.  



A 50/50 raffle is conducted during most meetings to augment the club’s finances. 



The club invites some of the best woodturners in the world to demonstrate at our club meetings and via Zoom remote sessions.   Woodturners freely share their skills with all, thus providing novice to expert turners with a wealth of information. 



The club will often offer information about wood that has become available and tools for sale. We also inform members of different woodturning events in the area and upcoming symposiums. 



Membership is open to all interested in woodturning. Annual dues are $ 25.00 per person. Dues are valid  for the  calendar year starting January 1st.  Dues for the half year of July to December are $12.50 per person. 


Members are strongly  encouraged to join the American Association of Woodturners. It publishes a great quarterly magazine about woodturning and an annual directory of members and resources and it organizes annual symposiums. The AAW offers liability insurance for all club organized activities to AAW members.  Click here for Membership
