We appreciate input from the membership to assist in several areas: we need volunteers to help with meeting setups, and to assist with the Library and website.  Most importantly, we need your ideas and participation in meeting programs -- giving a presentation to your fellow woodworkers is always appreciated!

Please be sure to bring a folding chair for seating at our meetings.  If you`ve borrowed a book or video from our Library, please remember to return it.

Welcome to the Western NC Woodworkers Association website! We are a group of area woodworkers who enjoy getting together once a month to share our knowledge of woodworking tools, techniques and project experiences.

Membership is open to anyone and a modest annual fee is all that is required for membership.

Most meetings are held the second Saturday of each month but they may vary so check our schedule under the Meeting link above or in the details below. Demonstrators from far and near show us new techniques and methods. If you are interested in attending one of our meetings as a guest, please use the information on the Contact Us page using the menu item above. 

Come along and join us to see what WNCWA is all about.

April 14th Meeting

Our April 14th meeting will be held at Klingspor`s Woodworking Shop starting at 9:30 AM.  This month`s program will feature a discussion on Spray Finishing. In this presentation, WNCWA member (and Klingspor Assistant Manager) Jack Hastings will focus on the Fuji line of HVLP (High Volume, Low Pressure) turbine sprayers and guns available from Klingspor. He will discuss why he changed from the more common Air compressor-style spray guns and will describe preparation of the equipment, techiques for handling different finish types and secrets of applying flawless finishes.

We will also be giving out a few door prizes to attendees -- Just sign-in and we'll give you a ticket!  We hope to see you there.


Members that have not renewed for 2018 are reminded to bring their cash or checkbooks as we will continue to collect 2018 dues of $25 (a 2018 Membership Form is available in Member Meeting Handouts). Anyone that has not joined or renewed by the end of April will lose out on member discounts at several vendors and may be dropped from our email contact list.


Remember to bring a folding chair!


WNCWA will provide coffee, sodas and bottled water as refreshments along with some cookies.  If time allows, we welcome members to bring a project or pictures on a USB Memory stick to share in our Show `N Tell Session. We always encourage members to bring a project, a new tool, a new book or at least some in progress pictures of their latest projects.

Our thanks to Ed Vendely and the staff at Klingspor`s Woodworking Shop for hosting us at the new store in Fletcher. I know our members have been impressed with the great selections available to support our love of woodworking -- everything from wood to abrasives to small tools to full-sized power equipment and literature!

We look forward to a great turnout at our meetings!
