The club was established in September 2002 with 4 members. Since then membership has risen steadily and stands now at over 80. Club meetings are held at the Daventry Community Centre on Ashby Road, Daventry.
There are also full day, normally Saturday, demonstrations by renowned professional woodturners 4 times during the year.
Many members travel some distance to the meetings to enjoy a happy relaxed atmosphere with regular top class woodturners as demonstrators. A shop and library are run by members of the committee. The committee meets regularly to ensure that the monthly programme is varied and of benefit to the members.
