The Florida West Coast Woodturners Club (FWCWT) is a local chapter of the American Association of Woodturners. Established exclusively for charitable and educational purposes, The FWCWT provides a meeting place for local turners to share ideas and techniques, and to educate the general public regarding the art of turning.
The Club meets at 6:30pm on the second Tuesday of each month at St. Paul’s United Methodist Church in Largo – 1520 Rosary Road, Largo, Florida (Across the street from the Church) Shop. Meeting house is on NE corner of Highland and Rosery Rd. 2nd Driveway East of Highland on the North Side. (see map for location and directions). Our facilities include a demonstration area with several lathes, and separate coffee/snack area.
Monthly meetings include a member gallery (“Show and Tell“), 50/50 and “Bring back” raffles, and a turning demonstration by local and internationally known turners. There is often a wood raffle or auction as well.
We are always glad to welcome new members, regardless of “experience“. Guests from other AAW chapters, who are visiting the Tampa Bay area, are also welcome to attend our monthly meetings.
Mentoring and coaching is available to turners of all skill levels, including those just starting out.
The FWCWT offers an extensive library of videos and print publications to our members.
