Strathclyde Woodturners, a non-profit making club, was formed in April 2002 by six amateur woodturners who had been members of Scotswood, a woodturning group which catered for members throughout Scotland. Because of the huge geographical area, Scotswood was unwieldy and eventually ceased to exist. The six members, who for the previous six or seven years had manned a stand on behalf of Scotswood at the annual Scottish Woodworking Exhibition, felt that there were sufficient amateur wood-turners in the West Central area of Scotland who desired to belong to a group, local enough to facilitate regular meetings.
We also decided to be affiliated to the Association of Wood-turners of Great Britain, which gives certain advantages. The AWGB celebrated its 30th Anniversary in 2017.
Thanks to funding from AWARDS FOR ALL, SCOTLAND, the Club has been able to purchase a good selection of tools and equipment for use by Club Members.
