    As part of our community service charter, we sometimes get requests for help.  These jobs are between you and the requestor.  You negotiate a price, specs, delivery with the requestor.

    Note: Remember no meeting this July 4th.  Next meeting is the August Picnic/Auction.

    =========================================

    Hello -- I'm writing in hope that a small project might be acceptable to you. 

    We have a broken baluster that we need to replace. A photo is attached. 

    It is 32 inches long,  1-1/2 inches square. It is in the staircase in our home, which dates from 1968. I haven’t been able to find any balusters for sale that match this design. I will be happy to mail it to you if we can do business. 

    We understand that the set-up for reproducing a shape like this can be somewhat costly. If you can do it, what do you charge? 

    We think the balusters are made of fir. Poplar or similar would be quite all right with us.

    If you make a replacement, can you also match the finish? 

    Many thanks for any advice and information you can provide. We are very hopeful that you will be able to help us. 

    Regards, Kate Fuller, 820 NW 19th Street, McMinnville, Oregon. 97128

    Hi,

    I am a new member of NW Woodturners. I'd like to contact anyone in the group who makes pens from native woods. I'm looking for someone able to make a small edition of aromatherapy necklaces on commission, using the kit from Penn State, which is very much like turning a pen (https://www.pennstateind.com/store/PKATHNBR.html). I have a small online business (http://www.oregonheartwood.com/) which sells essential oils, among other handmade products, and am interested to add this type of  aromatherapy diffuser to our line. (Personally I've never gotten into making pens.) If anyone is interested in discussing this further, please give me a ring.
