The American Association of Woodturners (AAW), a Minnesota-based  nonprofit education organization, has partnered with Rockler Woodworking and Hardware to offer in-store "turning and learning" demonstrations in Rockler stores on Saturday, February 9th.

Experienced turners from local AAW chapters will be conducting the demonstrations to introduce woodturning to the community in Rockler stores. Attendees will observe how to turn handles for kitchen utensils using a lathe, as well as how to attach a handle to the appropriate hardware.  

“AAW is thrilled to collaborate with Rockler to introduce new audiences to the enjoyment of woodturning,” said Phil McDonald, executive director of the AAW. “These demonstrations are an outstanding opportunity to learn more about woodturning and to meet others who are interested in the craft. As a nonprofit whose mission is education, the AAW welcomes new turners to learn and grow with us and become a part of the special community that is woodturning.”

The following Rockler stores will offer the AAW turning demonstrations twice on February 9th with sessions from 11am – 1 pm and 1 – 3 pm.
