Monthly meetings feature presentations of interest to woodworkers. They are typically held at 7pm, recently moving to the 3rd Wednesday of the month.There have also been some changes to the location of the meetings. Please click Upcoming Meetings to check details below or look in the Newsletter.
Examples of past program topics include:

Suggestions for programs are always welcome. Past programs are recorded and available in the library under the category “meeting.”
Meetings also include time for questions, help from other woodworkers, and sharing of accomplishments (Woodworker’s Show and Tell).
There is also a “sub-group” of carvers who hold an additional monthly gathering with “hands-on” sessions focusing on carving techniques, sharpening, design, and painting.

CUTTING BOARDS & TUMBLED FORMS
After military service I apprenticed with a master carpenter in Montana for four years. I returned to Green Bay and became a fiberglass mold maker and then moved into industrial sales. I’ve always kept my hand into some type of woodworking project, building cabinets, furniture, toys and the typical list goes on. One Xmas I made cutting boards as gifts for the family. That sparked my continuing interest in the creative process of making boards.

Events sponsored by other groups:
The NEWWG has hosted a woodworking show in Green Bay each spring since 1983 to bring greater awareness of woodworking to the larger community. Members display their work, with some woodworkers demonstrating techniques as well. Some will also have items for sale. A raffle of donated items draws a lot of interest, and provides revenue to the guild. Dates and details announced as they are developed.
