The exceptions when monthly meetings do not take place include the month of the Spring Woodworking Show, August Picnic, and December Potluck celebration.
Examples of past program topics include:
- Glues and adhesives
- Spalted wood
- Flute making
- Many more
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.

Guild meeting Wednesday, July 21, 2021 @ 7 pm – The Art Garage in Green Bay
Members Show & Tell
All members are welcomed to do a “Show & Tell” for our July meeting to be held at The Art Garage. Show us what you have been working on during The Pandemic. This is a chance to get reacquainted with each other and display your woodworking talents and interests. Don’t be afraid to show off your work. Guild members join to share ideas and look forward to seeing other members’ creations. It has been nearly a year and a half since we had a non-virtual meeting. We usually have a “Show & Tell” before a presentation at each meeting. We have a lot of catching up to do. We are looking forward to seeing all of you as well as your creations.
If your project cannot be readily transported, you can bring photos to share, or email your photos to Barry ahead of time. He will project them on the screen and you can comment (email@example.com).
This meeting is also our getting back together celebration., with socializing and snacking time after the program. Please bring “finger food” snacks to share. Special incentive for member renewal. There will also be a drawing for a $50 gift card from Woodworker’s Depot. See July newletter for details on eligibility.
