North Shore Woodturners Guild


You have arrived at the home page of the North Shore Woodturners Guild, a group of woodworkers who specialise in turning wood, mostly for pleasure.

Our Guild Hall is set among the mature trees of the Agincourt Reserve in Glenfield, Auckland, New Zealand. The hall provides a focal meeting place to socialise with others interested in the woodcrafts, to talk and practice woodturning, and to watch demonstrations of methods and skills we wish to become familiar with. A good proportion of the demonstrators are from other regions and disciplines, so there is always something new and interesting to learn.

The Guild Hall is equipped with sufficient woodturning lathes for both our members own use and for the ongoing training activities of our members and other groups, such as those helping "youth at risk". We have lathes suitable for new members to borrow while they work out if woodturning is for them, before investing in their own equipment.

We welcome all visitors to our Tuesday evening meetings, and encourage anyone interested to come along to one of these Demonstrator Evenings, or to Contact Us to find out more.
