Our Auction is the  highlight of the Saturday night banquet. The proceeds fund the Chicago Woodturners educational programs for a 2 year period. In 2016 we auctioned 85 items. The price paid ranged from $30 to $1300, (2 pieces), with an average price of $187 per item. The auction moves fast and is typically filled with a mix of items from well recognized professional artists, demonstrators, trade show vendors, and club members. It is a great opportunity to go home with unique turned art and useful tools.
