If you would like to contribute a new write-up for a member not listed or add to an existing one, please use the Contact Us page. We would love to include personal stories of how these folks contributed to OVWG and/or you personal woodturning life.

The OVWG Board approved two policies that you may wish to take note of: 
  1. Bereavement Policy: Unfortunately, members do pass away from time to time. We would like to acknowledge and honor those members. We have established this "In Memoriam" page to that end. When someone passes away, we will activate a link on this page for them, post a picture, comments that other members might like to make, any obituary that is available to us and link to pictures of their work if available. The document outlining this can be viewed in the Documents Folder, on the Tab called Bereavement, Estate Assistance, or by clicking on this link: Bereavement Policy. If you have more to add for any of the members posted here, or wish to suggest adding others who have passed away, please email
  2. Estate Assistance Policy: We all have an investment in our shops. When one of us does pass away, the family may want to dispose of the tools, equipment, supplies, and other items in the shop. It is important that, if there is to be a sale, that the family gets fair value for those items. The Guild would like to offer assistance in this process. The policy covering this is also in the Documents Folder, same Tab as above, or by clicking on this link: Estate Assistance Policy
