Gary Olerud Top Contest 2024
Gary Olerud's strength in teaching the techniques for turning top moved him to start a top turning contest before the pandemic. Randy Wright took over as Gary passed away and held our 2024 contest. Everyone who entered the contest donated their tops to the Beads of Courage.
Welcome to Stateline Woodturners
We are a woodturning club that welcomes people of all experience levels to learn and create in a safe and friendly environment.
As an affiliate chapter of the American Association of Woodturners, we provide instruction on everything from the basics of woodturning to advanced segmented turning.
Guests are always welcome
at our meetings.
We meet the 2nd Saturday of each month
At The Center for Nonprofits @ St. Mary’s in Rogers
North 1200 W. Walnut Street In the basement
at 9:00 – 12:00.
Check our Calendar for speical events.
At these meetings we feature a teaching demonstration from club members, a bring-back raffle, a show and tell, and time to socialize and share what we’ve all been working on.
The 4th Saturdays at 9:00 – 12:00
We hold monthly hands-on mentoring workshops where experienced turners help members improve their techniques, sharpen tools, and answer questions on specific projects.
These sessions benefit both new and experienced woodturners and are a great opportunity to learn and practice.
The meetings are held at different locations, but we usually
use the Integrated Design Lab at Northwest Arkansas Community College, which has six Powermatic midi-lathes available for use, or at the club house in the non-profit center, where we have three lathes.
