Welcome and thanks for visiting the website for the Tennessee Association of Woodturners. We look forward to sharing the skills needed to advance the knowledge of woodturning. Whether we are novice, craftsman or artist, a shared love of working with wood creates the bond that makes us strong.

Purpose: To provide an environment that fosters the art and craft of woodturning. Our members share techniques on turning wood, finishing wood, safe woodworking practices, proper tool and equipment use. We strive to increase awareness and appreciation of design for wood turned objects having functional or artistic objectives.

Who We Are: The Tennessee Association of Woodturners is a local chapter of the American Association of Woodturners. Member’s skill levels range from novice to skilled professional. Some make all or part of their living from the craft. Interests cover the entire range of woodturning. The TAW places a strong emphasis on both personal and environmental safety.

Meetings: The TAW meets the first Tuesday of each month at the Tennessee Baptist Children’s Home, located at 1310 Franklin Rd, in Brentwood, Tn. In addition we meet for a hands on Turn-In work day on the Saturday following the monthly meeting, unless otherwise announced, at the woodshop located on the Tennessee Baptist Children’s Home property. TAW periodically participates in local exhibitions and demonstrations as well as sponsoring an annual symposium.
