Our mission is to provide education and information to those who are interested in woodturning. We define woodturning as the shaping of wood using a lathe, which results in objects and images that range from the familiar to the profound. This includes everything from decorative and functional bowls, boxes, and vessels to furniture, architectural spindles, toys, tools, musical instruments, and sculptural objects. The Palmetto Woodturners is a Chapter of the American Association of Woodturners.
