  1. Easy Wood Tools Face Plate Rings and Drive Centers set ($289.95) Quote: Jim Luley of Easy Wood Tools ~ "The cool thing about this package is that all of these products will work with just about any 4-Jaw Woodturning Chuck on the market. 

    So while they were designed for use with our Easy ChuckTM, they will work with most others, this package will appeal to most all wood-turners." (Fred Hargis)

  2. Easy Wood Tools Mini Turning Tools ($269.97) (Jodie Rhode)
  3. Woodcraft's Woodriver Bench Top Router Table (199.99) (Jaime Guerrero)

Where your money goes

Typically we hold fundraising events for our causes that support our wounded veterans, or we'll use the funds to outfit a shop for a disabled woodworker in need, or we'll donate the funds to Homes For Our Troops.


This time, we are directing the bulk of the raffle proceeds to offset the costs associated with running this woodworking community, yes, this community cost money! And we need you to help us keep us live.


So, if you live here, if you have benefited from this community at all, if you visit us and you are entertained by our woodworking community, if you login and hang out and call us home, please consider participating in this fundraiser. This is your community, this is your chance to help in a direct manner by contributing to offset the costs associated with running our woodworking forums and the causes we support.


In closing

Our entire community would love to thank our contributing sponsors. Woodcraft and Easy Wood Tools, they are staunch supporters of our woodworking community.


Laguna Tools

Typically Laguna Tools is with us in these fundraising projects, we are in the process of notifying Laguna Tools that they have been invited to join us this year, but they are completely busy so we don't want to push our sponsors too hard now do we?

If they decide to come up for air and contribute to this event, we'll update this page accordingly.

We want to thank Laguna Tools for all the support they have given in the past, today, and into the future!

If I may also add, we don't have ads, no popup ads, no google tracking, no click baits like all the other woodworking forums do, we do not generate income from anything other than our sponsors annual dues and your contributions during this fundraiser. All your help is greatly appreciated!


I have vowed to keep ads off of our community forums, our community will die before I put those irritating ads up, it just seems so cheap to see pop ups, side bars full of advertising for Ford Trucks and vacations, nothing against Ford trucks, but if you are navigating a woodworking forum, why should you see an ad for a Ford Truck or Chevy, or for a pharmaceutical ?


Our community is completely grass roots, and we hope you all support us. Thank you :)
