Who We Are…
The Blue Ridge Woodturners is a chapter of the American Association of Woodturners serving
the New River Valley & Greater Roanoke region of Southwestern Virginia. We are
a group of people with the common interest in (or addiction to) turning wood on the lathe.
We usually meet on the fourth Thursday of each month at the Williamson Rd. Masonic Lodge, 3025 Pioneer Rd Roanoke, Virginia (for ” Driving Directions“.)
We do, however, hold special events and some meetings at other locations in the area. Please
check often for upcoming events and meetings.
