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 7pm with the demonstrator starting at 7.30pm although for the next few meetings we will be trying out a 7.15pm start. The evening will usually close at 9.30pm to allow for clean up.

To see our future evening itinerary please go to the “Programme” Page

The Next Club Meeting:  1st May 2019 – Ian George and May Competition.

For the next meeting we welcome one of our members Ian George who will be giving us a demonstration. Not sure yet what the demo will be but we can be sure that it will provide interest and inspiration. Come along and see what goes on. We also have the May competition which is an open category so please bring along your pieces for the table. It is worth bearing in mind this is the last meeting before Woodworks at Daventry. We are participating again with a stand and we need pieces to exhibit. We are asking for 3 pieces from each member to give us a strong pool to chose from for the judging panel. Please bring these to the meeting on the 1st May, in a box clearly marked on the outside with your name and each piece also named on the bottom (sticky label will be fine).

General notices.

Yearly subscriptions are now due at £10.00. These will be collected on the door over the next few meetings.

Woodworks 2019.

The dates for Woodworks 2019 have been released and is due to take place on the 10th and 11th May 2019. The details of the competitions etc have been finalised and these are shown on the Club Notices page for your reference, although there have been a couple of alterations which we have been notified of. We will be looking for pieces for the stand so can you please bring 3 of your best pieces on the 1st May meeting.

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.

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.
Also in the For Sale page is a lathe for sale from club member Roy Woolley and  1 person that has contacted us recently with lathes and tools for sale. Please go to this page for more information. If you are interested please contact the sellers directly.
We have also been offered the opportunity to have some Laburnum that has now been cut down, details on the For Sale page (along with a photo)
