Waxhaw Woodturners supports the Carolina Piedmont Penturners Group (CPPG), a special interest club that is devoted to the making and turning of pens, pencils and similar items as well as the creation of materials (called blanks) for making these items.  CPPG is also proud to be affiliated with the International Association of Penturners (IAP).


We normally meet on a bi-monthly basis on the third Saturday of every other month.  Meetings start at 9:00 AM and usually run until noon and are held at Makerspace Charlotte.  Meetings consists of a demonstration on one or more aspects of pen making/turning.  We also have a session where members share their pen making experiences and show off their latest creations.  Additionally, we hold a raffle for pen turning-related items.


During the COVID-19 Pandemic, we have been holding meetings via Zoom.  We may continue this practice post-Covid by offering an in-person meeting on the odd numbered months followed by a Zoom meeting on the even numbered months. The Zoom meetings are currently scheduled for the third Wednesday of the month.
