The Hudson Valley Woodturners return to the library on Saturday, May 16. Register in advance to learn how to use a lathe to create your own wood “Cross-style” pen. Time slots are limited to 11:00 am, 12:00 noon, 1:00 pm, and 2:00 pm. There are only four lathes. This program is free.

The Hudson Valley Woodturners Association is a local chapter of the American Association of Woodturners.

“Our mission is of education. Teaching newcomers, young and not-so-young, is the cornerstone of our foundation. It is our reason for being. Help teach someone else with the skills you have. Help them enjoy the craft. Woodturning is all about safety and sharing. We should be reminded of how important safety is to our past time or profession. There is no such thing as being too safe. Personal protective equipment, good practices, and continued vigilance are paramount.”
