The safety of our members, guests, students and hosts has been and will continue to be our first priority.  We believe that all woodturning accidents are avoidable if we take proper measures in advance.  


The club owns many face shields and they should be used when turning wood on a lathe. The AAW will not use your photo for publication if it depicts a woodturner at the lathe without a face shield and safety glasses.  


The GAC, YWCA, and SPW maintain first aid supplies just in case of an accident. We have a large poster of the AAW Safety Rules and they are posted in the classrooms. Youth Woodturners are required to take safety tests and pass with a score of 100 before using a machine.

Common Woodturning Terminology

When you begin to learn woodturning, you may be intimidated or confused by the terminology. What does it mean to ride the bevel, for example? What is an SRG? Here is a glossary of woodturning terms you may hear when you watch a woodturning demonstration, attend a chapter meeting, or read an article. You are now on your way to talking like a woodturner.

Woodturning Types   Woodturning Terms   Lathe Parts

The manufacturers like Jet provide an excellent manual with their products. Here is a link to view or download the Jet 1221 VS lathe like we have for our students.

Finally, here is a link to every machine process and a safety test for all Career & Technical Education areas.

 https://www.cdc.gov/niosh/docs/2004-101/pdfs/safe.pdf


 "Safety consciousness requires that the student be educated in safety generally and specifically. The teacher, in working to develop a positive attitude toward safety, should teach the student to ask “Is what I am about to do unsafe in any way to myself, to others, or to property?” 


It is essential that the instructional methods lend themselves to positive safety attitude development. This includes 

(1) a clean and orderly working environment, 

(2) the awareness of possible accident situations where respect replaces fear, 

(3) the importance of rules and regulations, 

(4) the necessity to teach the correct way to perform the first time, 

(5) the knowledge and skills in the use and the proper maintenance of tools and machines, 

(6) the reinforcement of safe operating procedures, and 

(7) proper respect for hazardous wastes and hazardous waste disposal. "

Have a safe class.
