Hello and welcome to the The Torbay Woodturners Club. We hope that you will find items on the site which will be of interest to you and encourage you to develop enthusiasm for your own wood-turning.
The emphasis of the club is to involve our members, particularly the less experienced, in hands-on demonstrations and to encourage as many members as possible to submit work for the six monthly ‘showcase’ which will then be scrutinised by the showcase member who will consider the various aspects of design, technique, finishing and grading accordingly.
Our age range varies across the spectrum from the relatively young to the more mature, some of whom have passed their eightieth birthday. The degree of expertise is also varied but it has to be said that most members can produce work of a very acceptable standard. That said we do welcome those with little or no turning experience.
Any person visiting our site who has an interest in woodturning and who lives in the Torbay and the surrounding areas are most welcome to join.
