What We Do

Regular club meetings, featuring a demonstration, show-n-tell, attendance raffles and shop talk are held on the fourth Monday of each month at 6:30 pm.

Live Demonstrations

At our monthly meetings, we see live sessions on particular techniques and projects, delivered by an experienced member. On occasion we invite a nationally known woodworker to provide the demos.


Members are encouraged to bring their latest projects to the monthly meetings and describe what they’ve been working on. Sometimes this is to get help from the group on a problem; many times it provides inspiration and oohs and aahs.

Hands-On Workshops

Scheduled throughout the year include hands-on workshops held at various locations, usually the workshop of a club member.

Shop Talk

Our in-person meetings always include helpful discussion from all experience levels. This could include topics like joinery, tools and techniques, fuming, bending, safety, shop operations and various projects.
