The club has an extensive library of videos and books on woodturning.  However, sometimes you want information on a specialized topic in woodturning that we don't have in the library.  Or, you may need information on a completely different topic, such as furniture making, metal working, welding, hanging drywall, bead making, airbrushing or just about anything else, and don't want to have to spend a fortune on DVD's you'll only watch once or twice.

Some of our members have used the services of "SmartFlix", and are very happy with the service and the quality of information on these DVD's.  As of this writing, SmartFlix has 5,352 videos in 224 categories.  These are all technical-type DVD's - not movies.

We added a link to this organization for two reasons.  One, it's a great service.  Second, if you use the following link and rent something from SmartFlix, the club will receive a donation of $5.00.  You have to go to their website using this link, because our "affiliate number" is embedded  in the link.  That way, they know who gets the credit.  But, we would be adding the link even if #2 wasn't true, because, after renting several of their DVD's, we really do believe that this is a good potential resource for our club members.
