Check out the new “Library” and “For Sale or Trade” tabs in the menu. Here’s why:
Over the summer, new guild member Barb Siddiqui donated a treasure trove of mostly hardback woodworking books to us. In other words, we have a library! Included in the 200+ titles are some of the best ever published: all of The Best of Fine Woodworking books, woodturning books, carving books, books on making period furniture, you name it.
The library is housed at Lombard’s Hardwoods, and all volumes are available for check-out by guild members. In the notebook provided on top of the bookcase, print your name and contact info, along with the names of the titles you are borrowing, then be sure to bring them back. If someone might want a page or two copied out of a particular book, we recommend taking a picture of the pages with your phone or tablet.
The “For Sale or Trade” idea has been bandied around for awhile now, and since yours truly (Autumn) will have to make all of the postings and updates, I was skeptical about starting it, but we’ll give it a go and see where it goes. I’ll do my best to keep it updated.
If you have a woodworking related item to sell or trade, send me the info, with photos, to firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to provide your name (some email addresses are obscure) and your contact information. Please send me an email advising me when to take down the posting, otherwise, you’ll keep getting inquiries.
