Rockler Woodworking and Hardware is partnering with the American Association of Woodturners and will offer in-store Turning and Learning demonstrations in 35 of its 37 stores on Feb. 9. Expert turners from local AAW community chapters will be conducting the demonstrations.
Attendees will learn how handles for kitchen utensils are turned on a lathe as well as how to attach a handle to the appropriate hardware. They will also be able to sign up for AAW memberships as part of the new partnership program with Rockler.
"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," Scott Ekman, Rockler's vice president of marketing, said in a statement. "These sessions offer 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."
