Welcome to West Northants Woodturners
This West Northants Woodturners website is updated regularly, after our meetings, so please do come back and see what’s new.
Better still, come along to one of our meetings (entry is free for the first couple of visits), meet the members and join in the activities.
There is more info about the club on the “About” page, including how to join.
West Northants Woodturners meet on the first and third Wednesday of each month.
Meetings start at 7.00pm with the demonstrator starting at 7.15pm. The evening will usually close at 9.30pm to allow for clean up.
We have updated our e-mail and have a new e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org however, for the short term our old email address has a divert in place but this will disappear soon. The links within the website have been changed but if you email us independently then please ensure you use our new address.
To see our future evening itinerary please go to the “Programme” Page
The Next Club Meeting: 4th March 2020 – Gary Rance and March Competition.
With Gary Rance doing the demonstration we will be in for a woodturning treat plus an entertaining bit of banter. Also tonight will be the March competition which is an open format so bring along your piece for the table.
As a club we try to encourage turners to improve their skills and also to be more involved with the events that the club organises. We are looking for members to step forward to do a demonstration one evening. This may sound daunting but could prove to be very rewarding and build your skills and confidence. If you would like to give this a try please contact Mick Denton and he will give you a run down of what to do. We would encourage you to give it a go.
Woodworks 2020. We have been notified that Woodworks show for 2020 will be on 15th and 16th May. The details have now been issued and are shown on the Non Club Events page.
Axminster Ltd discount. Over the last couple of meetings it was mentioned that if you purchase anything at an Axminster Tools store and you produce your membership card you are entitled to a 5% discount on all products except power tools. This discount applies only to transactions in store or over the phone.
Book Sale: The committee have also decided that as there have been no lendings from the library over the last 12 months that all of the books will be sold. If you are interested please see Tom Donnelly during the next few meetings to view what is available and get a price. There are still a few useful reference books available and only for a few pounds so get in quickly before they all go.
Keep your eye on the for sale
page as there is always a possibility of a bargain.
