Many thanks to David and Karen Williams who have agreed to once again, host the event.  If you can help during the auction, please let us know when you arrive and we will find a task for you.

What is It

This is our annual fund and fun raiser.  It is a critical event in keeping NWWT in good financial shape and provides fantastic bargains for our members.  Also, it has been some time since we have seen each other face to face so a great opportunity to renew friendships.  If you are new to turning and looking for tools or wood to turn, this is your chance to pick up a year’s worth of wood for pennies on the dollar.  We can take credit cards, checks or cash.

How Can You Help

This is an event where we need our members to donate what they can to the auction as well as spend money for all the donations.  Below are items we suggest.

  • Turned Items – Donate one of your favorite pieces and let members bid on it.
  • Good Wood – We are looking for nice wood, wood that you would buy yourself.  Figured wood, green wood, crotch pieces, burls, etc.  All items should be sealed and ready to turn. We always appreciate quality over quantity, big and small pieces, bowl, spindle, and hollow form blanks.  Please be critical in what you pick to donate so we are not left with firewood. 
  • Tools and Jigs – Good tools and jigs are always popular so look at your inventory and see what duplicates or tools you no longer use.
  • Food – We will supply dogs, burgers, plates and some drinks.  We need members to bring salads, desserts, fruit, etc.

New Members

If you are new to the club or have never been to our auction, we start with a great BBQ at around noon.  We always appreciate for members to bring a dish to share – fruit, dessert, and side dishes.  We will take care of the meat.  You will have plenty of time to browse the donations and pick out your target items.

At around 1:00, after everyone if full, rather than taking a nap we start our auction and again we will have the professional auctioneer as we have had in the past which keeps the show lively and fun.

We hope to see you there!

Note, in the past we have had members who could not make the auction but would like to make a contribution to the club.  If you are one of them, you can easily donate online at https://northwestwoodturners.wildapricot.org/Donate .  NWWT is a 501-c3 non-profit organization and all donations are tax deductible.
