Keystone Woodturners

Keystone Woodturners is a chapter of the American Association of Woodturners. We share the purpose of providing education and information to those interested in woodturning. The Club was founded in 1996 and has grown to over 75 members. We meet monthly on the third Wednesday of the month. Check out the other tabs on this website for examples of what we and our members have been doing and for other information about the Club.

December Community Service Project – “Giving Back”

For December, we have donated a decorated Christmas Tree to the Boyertown Area Multi-Service’s 11th Annual Festival of Trees.  The tree project supports Boyertown area community projects.


Beads of Courage lidded boxes to be donated to  A.I. DuPont Childrens Hospital in early 2018.
Through the Beads of Courage campaign, children receive a unique bead to represent each procedure or treatment. For example, a red bead for each blood transfusion, a yellow bead for each night in the hospital, a star bead for surgery, a white bead for chemotherapy. Their collection of beads becomes a tangible record of their journey. Each wood-turned box will be used to hold a sick child’s precious beads.  In 2015 Keystone Woodturners donated a total of 35 Beads fo Courage wooden boxes.  Our 2018 goal is 50 wooden boxes through March 2018.
