A woodturning exhibit by the Central Connecticut Woodturners is on display at the South Windsor Public Library. According to a synopsis about CCW also on display, the organization was founded in 1994 to support the education and skill development of woodturners in central Connecticut. Since then, its members

have played an instrumental role in construction aspects and 006continued maintenance of a working replica of Amistad, such as sanding and finishing the natural wood finish of the 19th Century sailing vessel, which holds a historic place in the nation’s civil rights history.

On display are a variety of lathe-turned decorative and functional wooden items.
