Montgomery County Woodturners (MCW)

We are a group of woodturners with skills varying from novice to professional.  We share the passion to create beautifully turned objects from various types of material, much of which would otherwise be destined for the fireplace!

New members are always welcome! To join MCW please click this link, fill out the form (all areas in red are required) and then bring the form with your check or mail it to address listed on the form. We meet monthly in Rockville, MD, and we would love for you to join us for a demonstration and for fellowship. We provide camaraderie and education through demonstrations and discussions at monthly meetings, through articles in the monthly newsletter, and by access to a wide array of information on our web site.

MCW is a local chapter of the American Association of Woodturners. The AAW is an international non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement of woodturning and has over 15,000 members in 27 countries. Many AAW members also belong to one (or more) of over 350 local chapters. Although MCW is a local chapter of the AAW, an individual’s membership in our chapter does not confer membership in the AAW or vice versa.  Membership in AAW is encouraged as it provides an additional source of great information (quarterly journal, national symposiums, members-only resources) and services not available with MCW.

Montgomery County Woodturners meet monthly around 6:30pm at the Woodworker’s Club in Rockville Maryland. We typically meet on the Thursday after the first Saturday of the month, but please check the table below for dates. New members and guests are welcome at all meetings.
