Florida West Coast Woodturners club is one of the most exciting clubs around. The Florida West Coast Woodturners Club (FWCWT) is a local chapter of the American Association of Woodturners. Established exclusively for charitable and educational purposes. The FWCWT provides a meeting place for local turners to share ideas and techniques, and to educate the general public regarding the art of turning.

Monthly meetings include "Show and Tell" where members show what they turned and tell the members how they did it. We also have two raffles, one is called "50/50" where the members put money into a pot and whoever wins splits the winnings with the club. The other raffle is called "Bring Back" where a turning is kept by the winner but they must bring back the next bring back turning.
