Club Library with Malcolm White

The Club maintains a varied collection of books, videos and DVDs on the subject of woodtuning and related skills. These are FREE for members to borrow for a month at a time.

The collection includes both instructional books for the very beginner and specialist books for most experienced (and most areas in between).

 You will find Malcolm White at every demo and member's evening, ready to give advice about what is available. 


The Club Library has two new additions :  30 Miute Woodturning by Mark Baker  & Learn to Turn  by Barry Goss
