Pen SIG Program

If there is one meeting of the Alamo Woodturners Association Pen Turners Group that you won’t want to miss, the June 1 meeting is it!  We will have a special program presented by the owners/operators of Timeless Wood Toys & Crafts, the Telfer family from New Braunfels.  Learn how the family developed their love of wood working, especially turning, into a legitimate family business.  You can find them almost every Saturday at the Farmer’s Market in Downtown New Braunfels demonstrating their skills and selling their turned items.

Dad, Phillip, and young woodworkers CJ (age 15) Grace (13) and Hannah (10) will bring their foot-powered treadle lathe to the meeting and will turn items such as cup & ball toys, throw tops, and even a spurtle for some lucky attendee’s kitchen.

The Telfers have evolved their love of wood working and turning into a family business.  They produce handcrafted toys and gifts from wood as a part time small business and entrepreneurial training for the kids. Their main craft is woodturning but also produce other toys and gifts using other woodworking skills.

Items they turn at the meeting will go into the drawing at the end of the meeting.
