An ability to poll the membership on a variety of subjects would be a plus. As an example if I was looking to buy a band saw I could poll the membership to see what is the most popular model, pros/cons of a model, or any of a dozen other things to help me choose. How about best lathe, turning tools, how-to articles, information of interests...lots of things.

Gene I remember around 1955 the furniture store I worked at had a very large wood sample kit for their customers to choose from...Constantine was the name..After I got out of the army in 1960 I ordered one . Seems like it had 50 samples but the furniture store had one with maybe 100 samples..

  I just now googled them and they still have samples to sell.. These are good for a person moving up in the world to learn what a person sleeps on and rocks on and so on...

    I decided back then I could not afford the exotic stuff so a little stain would be the way I would go..

Long time ago...a few moves ago...I had one of those Constantine samples. Like you, I just used stains. 

I was thinking of swapping samples of local woods not normally found in a hardwood store or lumber yard. Mesquite comes to mind. As does Salt Cedar or Tamarack and Pistachio, as well as olive wood and sage.
