INDIANA GAZETTE: Local artisans turn wood into elegance (09/22/2019)

The Indiana County Woodturners Association has been around for approximately 20 years.

The group meets the second Tuesday of every month, from September through May, on Indiana University of Pennsylvania’s campus.

Their organization’s goal is to educate woodturners and the general public in the art and craft of woodturning, whose origins date to ancient Egypt.

“We are a local chapter of an international organization called the American Association of Woodturners and there are several chapters like us located all across the United States,” local president Daryl Roamer said.

“Our organization is for people who have never done it or for people who have done it at the highest level. There is stuff for everybody to do at our meetings, no cost.”

The meetings, which start at 7 p.m., are held in the turning studio on the lower level of Sprowls Hall.

“We have about 25 people at our meetings, depending on the time of the year,” Roamer said. “We have people bring things for show and tell, and things they are working on. It could be as simple as a little spindle or as complicated as a segmented pattern of beautiful wood boxes.
