Wood Raffles and Auctions
A lot of wood from local trees is donated to the club by members. Bucked chucks of wood are raffled off for $1 each at our meetings. Usually this is green wood but sometimes we have tools, supplies or dried woods as well. We also get highly figured and burl wood in which you can bid for in a silent auction.
The club sells common woodturning supplies like CA and sandpaper at 30% retail costs.
Receive 10% discounts on hand tools and supplies at retail stores like Woodcraft and Rockler when you become a member.
Three CNEW Membership Options
CNEW has three membership models. Our most popular is a regular membership for an individual. We have several families with memberships is our club. The family membership is priced low to encourage woodturning as a family hobby and activity. Finally, we offer a low cost option for students or young turners under 25 years old.
Fees are collected annually for the current year. Perspective members are welcome to attend two club meetings as guests to help evaluate if they would like to join for the remainder of the year. From time to time, we host a nationally recognized turner and have a door charge to help defray the costs for the professional demonstrator.
