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: 5th June 2019 – The 3 Musketeers and June Competition.
For the next meeting we have the favourite format of the 3 Musketeers, however, this one will be a little different with new people doing the demonstration. Come along and see what goes on. The June competition is yet again an open format so please bring your pieces for the table.
Yearly subscriptions are now due at £10.00. These will be collected on the door over the next few meetings.
Woodworks 2019 – Show Results.
The 2 days of Woodworks 2019 on the 10th and 11th May 2019 proved to be excellent for West Northants Club. The details of the competition results have been finalised and these are shown in more detail on the Club Notices page for your reference. In general the show was well worth visiting with a large number of clubs undertaking their competition pieces and professional turners doing demonstrations throughout the day. There was plenty to interest everyone and with the commercial stands, lots of places to spend your money.
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). There is also another offer of Laburnum and Cherry showing on the for sale page.
