Welcome to Catoctin Area Turners

Catoctin Area Turners (CAT) is located in Leesburg, VA.  Established in 2009, we are a group of enthusiasts dedicated to the craft of woodturning.  Our mission is to advance the art of woodturning by educating our members and the public, enhancing the skills of our members and promoting the awareness of safety.  This is accomplished by encouraging, providing, and facilitating the establishment of training programs for woodturners; disseminating information about technique, safety, sources of material and equipment; exposing the art of woodturning to the public; and serving as a center of information about woodturning.

CAT is a local chapter of the American Association of Woodturners.
