About Us

Magnolia Woodturners, a Mississippi Chapter of the American Association of Woodturners was chartered July 20, 1996 for individuals interested in woodturning. The primary purpose of the Magnolia Woodturners Inc. is consistent with the fundamental purposes of the American Association of Woodturners, to provide information, education, and organization of those interested in turning wood....

In addition, Magnolia Woodturners Inc. purposes are to:

  1. Provide a meeting location for woodturners...maps and directions.....
  2. Share ideas regarding woodturning, including lathes, tools, turning materials, turning techniques and designing of turned objects
  3. Exchange wood and other woodturning materials.
  4. Inform members about activities of interest to woodturners.
  5. Promote woodturning as an art form and craft.

We meet on the third Saturday of each month (usually taking the month of December off). Location and directions are under Newsletter and Directions.

In our library we have amassed an extensive inventory of videos, books and other publications about woodturning for MWI members.  Library material is available at each meeting for checkout and return.  Please limit loans to approximately 30 days in order that material can be made available to all members.  Your suggestions for additions to the library will be appreciated.
