With the COVID related restrictions most of us are dealing with, many of us have had more time to spend in the shop. Unfortunately, due to these same restrictions, our opportunities to acquire the necessary stock for our turning projects has been limited. As a benefit to our members, WGNC recently purchased a large inventory of quality turning blanks and we are going to offer this stock to our membership at a significant discount.

The turning stock is currently being stored at our storage unit in Raleigh.  The stock consists of spindle stock, bowl blanks and platter blanks.  Most of the wood is green and sealed in wax.  For those who participated in our previous sale, we have replenished  our stock, particularly for bowl and platter blanks.

The specifics of the sale are as follows:


When:        Friday, November 20, 2020 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM

                 Saturday, November 21, 2020, 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM


Location:    WGNC Storage Unit at Ample Storage, 5212 Old Wake Forest Road, Raleigh, NC


Terms:       Cash or Check only.  Please bring small bills to make correct amount if using cash.


Logistics:     In order to maintain social distancing, the sale will be limited to one member at a time.  A sign-up sheet has been created on the WGNC website.  Each signup slot allots you a 30 minute segment in which to choose your turning stock (please do not sign up for more than one slot).  To choose your day and time, please sign up here.  On the day you are signed up for, arrive at the designated time.  We will meet you at the gate, at that appointed time and take you to our unit.  All participants must wear a mask during the sale.
