Barnesville Woodturners is a chapter of the American Association of Woodturners. Each of the members has an interest in woodturning.  For some it may be just a hobby, or a way to unwind on the weekends, others may do it after they retire. And for others it may be the way they  make a living. Whatever the reason, each has at least one thing in common .. A passion for woodturning..

Regular Meetings

We meet the Second Tuesday of each month.  If their schedules permit, many of our members start the evening by gathering at Deraney’s Two City Tavern, 216 Main Street, Barnesville at 5:00 pm for food & fellowship. 

The meeting itself is held in the basement at The First Methodist Church of Barnesville ,
375 Thomaston Street, Barnesville, GA 30204.  The door to the church basement is located on Holmes Street (across from the Library) – approximately 5 minutes from Deraney’s Two City Tavern.

We open the door to the Church at 6:00 pm for setup; DVD check in/check out; and socializing.  Each meeting starts at 6:30 pm with a brief business discussion, Show/Tell and a club raffle.  The raffle includes wood and other items donated by members.  Raffle tickets are $1.00 each (6 for $5.00) and the proceeds go to the Club’s General Fund to support Club activities.  After the Raffle there is a woodturning demonstration.  The meeting typically ends at about 8:30.

Guests are always welcome at our dinners and meetings; and are encouraged to bring some of their work to display in the Show and Tell.
