Gil Buffkin President of Cumberland Woodturners
Saturday Workshop at Les Black's
2nd Satuday of the month at 9 AM CST.
Cumberland Woodturners is an organization of men and women who enjoy turning wood. Our members range from novice to professional. Our goal is to advance in wood turning. We have a mentoring program to assist others in improving their skills. Members have access to our extensive library of Wood turning DVD’s, books and magazines. Also, we have a hands on workshop on the Second Saturday of each month. At the workshop, we work with each other to solve problems, work on jigs and fixtures and work one on one with new turners. Our meeting are held on the last Wednesday of the month. The meetings are held at 6PM CST at 1432 War Eagle Dr., in Crossville, Tn. The meeting is preceded by a one hour social gathering where refreshments are served. Our meetings feature a demonstration by one of our members or an invited guest. We have an instant gallery where members show and explain their latest works. We also have a challenge of the month where members turn what the demonstration was the previous month. The challenge is meant to expand our members abilities. Our annual dues are $30.00. This is quite reasonable considering eleven demonstrations, eleven workshops and our year end party.
Our Meetings are: The last Wednesday of the month at 6pm CST.
