AAW membership is the perfect complement to a chapter membership. Newer turners will expand their skills more quickly and safely, while more experienced turners will have an opportunity to learn even more new techniques.

We encourage you to take a minute at your next meeting to invite club members to give AAW a try as a free Guest. Invite any non-AAW members to sign up as a free Guest to kick AAW's tires for 60-days. Guests have access to a broad sampling of AAW's publications and services. This month, AAW offers its Guests a portion of the February issue of American Woodturner, which includes the project, "Make a Better Mallet," by Janet A. Collins.   Link to AAW Video Source

Minnesota Woodturners Association ("MWA"), a Minnesota nonprofit corporation, exists to foster and encourage a wider understanding and appreciation of woodturning as a craft and art form, both traditional and contemporary, among the general public, hobbyists and professional woodturners, and to educate the general public and MWA members in the art and techniques of woodturning.
