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. 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: Hands on session and Christmas – 19th December 2018.

This will be the last meeting of the year and is a hands on session. Several lathes will be put out for anyone to have a go on. Bring your tools and projects and have a go. It is also the Christmas meet so there will be things to eat mainly nibbles and mince pies etc. If you want to bring something sweet or savoury for the table please do so. It is a great chance to socialise and pass on or your tips and tricks and also quiz others on what they are doing.

If you can’t make it to the meeting, please take a look at our For Sale page; it will be updated as the club lathes become available or, indeed, with member’s private sales.
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.
