Discover Woodturning

Woodturning is the craft of using the wood lathe with hand-held tools to cut a shape that is symmetrical around an axis of rotation. Like the potter’s wheel, the wood lathe is a simple mechanism which can generate a variety of forms limited only by the imagination of the artist or craftsperson.


It’s not that difficult. You can learn to creatively, safely make beautiful turned objects from wood. The members of Etowah River Woodturners can help show you how and support you every step of the way. As avid turners ourselves, we love to share what we love — woodturning.
