The Wasatch Penturners Club


This group of penturning fanatics meets at 7:00 p.m. on the first Thursday of every even-numbered month in the Woodcraft store at 9891 South 500 West in Sandy, Utah.  Everyone is welcome.

Our meetings are lively, interesting, and educational, and everyone seems to have a good time. We enjoy pen turning, wood turning and other types of small turnings, including demonstrations, “show & tell”, “tips & tricks”, group discussions, and more.  Door prizes are offered from time to time.  And we also sponsor group purchases of penturning materials and supplies.


Here is one pen a member made using layers of Corian.
