Home of Toronto's Woodturning Community

Welcome!

The Toronto Woodturners Guild (TWG) is dedicated to advancing the art of woodturning through the sharing of ideas and techniques, education and community involvement. Woodturning is the ancient craft of creating objects by using stationary tools while the wood is spinning or "turning" on a lathe. Modern woodturners often create pieces that have artistic merit as well as practical value.

American Association of Woodturners (AAW)

American Association of Woodturners (AAW)

The TWG is a chapter of the AAW, a non-profit organization headquartered in the USA and dedicated to advancing the art and craft of woodturning worldwide. There are many benefits to joining the AAW including receiving their very fine magazine "American Woodturner." Through this group, you can follow leading trends, learn to improve your skills, connect with woodturners in other countries. Their annual symposium attracts thousands of attendees. Very importantly, AAW members are covered by the chapter liability insurance that AAW provides to local chapters. We encourage all TWG members to join the AAW. Get more information at www.woodturner.org
