Who We Are


The Seattle Woodturners is a local chapter of the American Association of Woodturners (AAW), an organization that promotes woodturning through sharing, education, information, outreach, community, and inspiration. Since 1987, our club has served woodturners in the greater Seattle area, including King County and beyond. We are all-volunteer, self-funding, and registered with the IRS as a non-profit 501(c)(3).

With 200+ members, we are a friendly and diverse group that includes both novice and experienced woodturners with a broad range of interests as well as professional turners and published authors who generously share their expertise. Our leadership team guides, shapes and establishes priorities for the club according to our By-Laws.


Learn more about what we offer to our members, who have access to an exclusive set of resources, discounts, and educational opportunities sponsored by the club. You don’t have to be a member to attend one of our meetings, so please come visit! It’s a great way to get to know us.

Here is a link to our most recent club budget which is approved annually by a vote of the membership:
