Catoctin Area Turners

Goal: $5,000.00

Specific Need

As part of our mission to educate woodturners CAT conducts monthly meetings and full day workshops on turning techniques, safety, tools and equipment, project design and wood finishing. Presenters and educators are local and regional turners and, at least four times a year, nationally recognized professional woodturners. Our meetings are conducted in rented space at Harmony Hall in Hamilton and the workshops in space generously provided by a CAT member. We have space for 8 turners during these sessions using lathes owned by members. The club is working to increase our volunteer support, secure capital funding for new equipment and maintenance of current equipment, improve our community outreach programs and to support our woodturning studio.

Mission

The purpose of Catoctin Area Turners (CAT) is to provide community outreach and to educate the public about woodturning in the areas of turning techniques, safety, tools and related equipment, design, wood selection, and finishing. We stress safety at all times. We provide information about artistic and architectural woodturning along with opportunities for both exhibiting and selling turned wood products. We aim to facilitate networking, friendship, and cooperation among woodturners. CAT welcomes all who may be interested in the wonderful art and craft of woodturning and wish to interact with others of similar interest. 

Profile

Catoctin Area Turners (CAT) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit woodturning club composed of members who gather to share their love of the art and craft of woodturning. CAT is a chapter of the American Association of Woodturners and is open to all with an interest in woodturning. You do not need to own any woodturning equipment in order to join and participate in CAT. Many members will welcome beginners into their shop for learning about woodturning on a lathe. We have a mentoring program and experienced turners are happy to share their knowledge and experience with beginners and experts alike. CAT has approximately180 current members so there is sure to be someone who shares your particular interest.
