Topic tags/keywords: nc woodworkers va question help fellow lumberjocks

Hello fellow Lumberjocks! I am writing this post in hopes of locating other woodworkers near me that if close enough, could meet up to collaborate/ learn from one another. I live in central-northern North Carolina area. Small town called Roxboro. This is north of Durham by about 30 minutes and south of Danville, VA about 30 minutes as well.
Thanks,
Sam

Lots of NC woodworkers, in fact we have a website:

Impressive NC, your own website, can anyone join or just people of the North Carolinian persuasion. :-)~

Sam,

Would love to stop by Homestead Steak House for a good Steak! LOL

Don’t know where you buy your lumber, but if you haven’t been there, Check out; The Hardwood Store in Gibsonville, NC. (just the other side of Burlington). Talk to Jeff (manager) or Hill (owner). Great place to get lumber, both domestic and exotic.

Woodworkers Supply is also out that way.
Tarheel filing Co. is a pretty good place to find woodworking tools ( in Raleigh) and of course you have Wurth Wood group in Raleigh also.

Used to be my old stomping grounds so let me know if I can be of any help.

I don’t live in NC anymore but Rick beat me to the link to NC woodworkers. It’s a great forum. There also use to be (not sure if they still do it or not) a meeting at Klingspor in Raleigh each month although I know that’s a bit of a drive for you.

Also if you are interested in traditional hand tools Roy Underhills school The Woodwrights school isn’t to far from you down in Pittsbough and I highly recommend it and the store above it.

The woodworking community in the area is one of the things I really miss about NC.

Triangle Woodworkers, they still meet. I used to be a club officer but then wasn’t able to attend meetings for a few years because of a job and let my membership expire. They have a lot of well known woodworkers as guest speakers, auctions, a library; good group. There is also a turning club in Cary but I have never attended.
