Special ‘Learn & Turn’ Demonstrations on Feb. 9th

Rockler is partnering with the American Association of Woodturners (AAW) and will offer in-store “turning and learning” demonstrations on Saturday, February 9th.

Houston, TX – Rockler Woodworking and Hardware stores in the Houston area, in partnership with the local chapter of American Association of Woodturners, will be holding special, in-store woodturning demonstrations on February 9th. Highly experienced woodturners from the local AAW chapter will be demonstrating and leading the sessions and the public is encouraged to attend this free event.

Attendees will learn how handles for kitchen utensils are turned as well as how to assemble the handle with the hardware. They will also be able to sign up for AAW memberships as part of the new partnership program with Rockler and to learn about additional resources they can use should they want to pursue woodturning as a hobby. Participants do not have to have any woodworking experience.

Woodturning differs from most other forms of woodworking in that the wood is moving while a stationary tool is used to cut and shape it – many intricate shapes and designs can be made – with end results that range from pens and handles to bowls and art objects.

“Rockler stores have been hosting free demonstrations every Saturday for a number of years, but partnering with the AAW is new and exciting for us, “said Scott Ekman, Rockler’s vice president of marketing. “These special sessions are a unique opportunity for anyone interested in woodturning to learn some tips and tricks, meet other people interested in the craft, and even join the AAW group.”

The special “Learn & Turn” demonstrations will be held at two times on February 9th, with sessions from 11am – 1 pm and 1 – 3 pm. More information is available online by clicking on the store link below.
