In loving memory of our cherished members who have left us, but whose passion for woodturning lives on in our hearts and in the beauty of the creations they crafted. They may no longer be with us in person, but their contributions to Carolina Mountain Woodturners continue to inspire and enrich our community. As we turn the wood and create, we remember their dedication, camaraderie, and the enduring legacy they've left behind. They will always have a special place in our woodturning family.
