Non-cash donations are always welcome, fill out the  Acknowledgement of Donations letter for your files. 

We are always looking for special or unique wood to create one of a kind pieces of art. We normally do not need pine, fir or other soft wood.

If you know someone who is removing a tree, we are happy to take some or all of the larger pieces. We can coordinate with whomever is cutting down the tree.  For insurance reasons, we cannot fell the tree but we can cut/harvest after the tree is down.  If possible, please give us some lead time so we can gather volunteer club members. We are happy to return a one-of-a-kind turned art piece as a thank-you.

We will need contact information (address where wood can be found, your phone number) and wood species (walnut, apple, olive, dutch elm, etc.).  Providing a picture would be great!

We welcome volunteer members to help harvest wood and prepare blanks (for bowls, vases, pepper grinders, etc.).  We especially appreciate members who have equipment (chain saw, band saw, truck).
