Welcome to the Kansas City Woodturners Website
Five KC Woodturners are displaying their work at a three-month long exhibit at the Mid-Continent Public Library, located at 8900 NE Flintlock Road, KCMO. This library is the crown jewel of all the libraries in the KCMO system. The Artists whose work is displayed are: Kris Coyan, Bob Davis, Don Frank, Jerry McMaster and Kevin Neelley.
This is our first lathe room cleanup of the year. It really needed it. A lot of volunteers came to clean and they did a really great job. Thanks to everybody involved, Saturday 3/6/2021. Here are some of the members that volunteered: Darrell Agee, David Alexander, Sue Bergstrom, Kris Coyan, Aron Crittendon, Anthony Harris, Chuck Levenson, Don Martin, Phil Royer, and I’m sure I left a couple people out.
