7:00 pm to 9:00 pm


Our June 2017 meeting is schedule for the 21nd, in the multi-purpose room at Erskine Academy. Come join us for at 6:30 pm for the Show and Tell photo session, and our usual coffee, donuts and bagels chat and gab session.


At 7:00 pm we will hold our annual meeting.

After our meeting, Dan Scott will demonstrate how he turns small finials.

The meeting will close with a look at our show and tell items.

We will be voting to fill the positions of vice president, secretary and treasurer, as well as on a few changes to our by-laws.

Just a nugget of golden thoughts.


Have you ever tried to make a mallet and the head just didn’t seem right. Well take a look at this article and see the errors of your ways. The important part is about half way into this article is the section on shaping the head of a mallet.

Mallet Head Angle

and from the “American Woodworker”

Just so you have a little background when someone asks you, “Why is that this way?”.



 We still need a Vice President.

Is it your time to step up and take a leadership role in the chapter. Is it your time to get some insights on how a chapter helps you become a better turner and how you can help others turn safely and effectively.

Then talk to Al or Brian or Lanny or Ken about how their time as officers in the Maine Woodturners has made them better turners; better craftsmen.

Have the conversation today and change your life and the life of the Maine Woodturners too.

 Are you showing your turnings at Fairs and Craft shows this season.
