First State Woodturners

The First State Woodturners Club, located in northern Delaware, is an affiliate chapter of the American Association of Woodturners (AAW).  The Club provides a place for area woodturners to meet regularly, show their recent work, learn new techniques, and discuss various aspects of woodturning.

We have lathes available, and experienced turners to demonstrate safe procedures and techniques.  We frequently have guest demonstrators at our monthly meetings — including turners from other chapters, as well as turners of national and international renown.

First State Woodturners meets the first Wednesday of every month at the Woodcraft of Wilmington store in New Castle, Delaware.  Besides northern Delaware, we have members from nearby southern Pennsylvania, southern New Jersey, and eastern Maryland.  The Club now has over 50 active members at all levels of experience,  including new turners who are just starting out.
