Tidewater Turners is a non-profit organization located in Norfolk, Virginia. We wish to promote the advancement of woodturning skills to our members and other interested persons through an open exchange of knowledge, ideas and information.
Each meeting has a demonstration on topics such as turning ornaments, multi-axis turning, how to make your own tools and more. Members and guests share what they have worked on during the past month in our Show & Tell and we also hold raffles to win wood, tools, lathe parts and more.
Throughout the year our club will hold public demos, workshops, shows and wood gatherings. We strive to increase public awareness of woodturning as a popular craft and as an art form.
See You There!
The Tidewater Turners welcome you to our web site and to the joy of woodturning in Hampton Roads, Virginia. Our club has over 120 members dedicated to the craft of woodturning and it is our sincere wish to share our interest and knowledge of woodturning with others. Our web site is a small part of our sharing as it is only one of several venues we use to reach out to those interested in woodturning. We hope you enjoy your journey through our web site and find it inspiring you to take up woodturning and/or come join us at one of our meetings.
Bret Glaze has received the award for this year’s Turning of the Year.
He was presented with a gift certificate at tonight’s Christmas Party.
His piece is a Tri Cornered Lidded Goblet.
The wood is a combination of Sycamore and Zircotte.
His piece was chosen from this year’s turning of the Month winners.
Thank you to all that participated
At the December 4 Board Meeting it was decided to make a couple of changes to our meeting format.
Beginning with the January 2015 meeting and with any other meeting that we have a paid demonstrator we will NOT have a Show and Tell.
We will also continue to hold our raffles but in a slightly different manner. Upon entering the meeting and before the meeting begins, you will be able to purchase tickets and during the demonstration break, winners will be announced. Ticket prices: $1 ea. – $5 for 6 — $10 for 12.
We feel these changes would allot more time for the demonstration and also, more members will now be able participate in the raffle and still be able to leave at a reasonable time after the demonstration.
It is currently listed at Craft Supplies at $2490, so the $1850 asking price is not bad, considering the condition. The photos suggest this is in pristine condition. It does not appear to come with a lot of accessories, just basically what originally came with the machine. I didn’t spend a lot of time looking around for possible comparable sale prices, so there may be something better than $2490 out there for a new one.
This one has 1×8 drive stock, and 2MT spindle and tailstock.
