Mentors

The BVW Mentor Program is designed to provide turning lessons and assistance to new woodturners in our chapter. These members volunteer their time and resources to assist the beginning turner to develop their skills at the lathe. Through sharing their skills and expertise, the Mentors seek to promote the time-honored tradition of sharing in the woodturning community.
