WANTED AND FOR SALE ITEMS:  We are using the Newsletter as a mechanism to list MEMBERS ONLY items for sale or wanted.  Please submit all requests for listings to the Newsletter master at:      All items will be listed ONLY once on request, and if not sold or acquired during that month's newsletter, another request for listing must be submitted.

All members are being asked to fill out the Survey of Members' Capabilities and Interests and bring it to the next meeting.  Let your voice be heard!  You have to tell us what you're interested in so we can have the programs you want.  And don't be bashful about your capabilities - share with your fellow woodturners - you'll get a lot more than you give!


The Inland Northwest Woodturners has a library of books and video media which are available to club members at no cost.  See the club librarian at the monthly meeting to check out any items from the library.  The list of library materials is here.
