A Visit to the Kansas City Turning Club
By Curtis Turner
Round Rock, TX
I recently had the opportunity to return to Kansas City for a woodworking event. I know, you might not think of Kansas City as a hot spot for woodworkers. However, you might be surprised to learn that the Woodturning and Woodworking clubs are extremely active. The woodworker's club boasts a membership base of over 300 and the turning club membership exceeds 120. The clubs share an amazing shop space that would be the envy of most clubs.
