Meetings and Events
Monthly meetings feature presentations of interest to woodworkers. They are typically held at 7pm on the 3rd Wednesday of the month. Please click Upcoming Meetings to check details below or look in the current newsletter in Newsletters. 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.

Dear Fellow NEWWG Members and Friends,
As you all are aware, our communities are under a virus War, the likes of which we have never seen in our lifetimes.
Each of us shares concern for our families of course, along with our friends and our Greater Communities. It is imperative that we as a team work together to also keep each other safe and free of this Pandemic!
Therefore after much research and consideration, as President & V. P. of your Guild. We feel it is imperative to cancel our B. O. D. meetings for 2 months, along with our regular monthly guild meetings for April and May. This may have to be updated, depending on what is shut down in our area. We will keep you posted.
We are sure we all can find lots of wood projects to create during this time. They will be a wonderful addition to our 38th Annual Show, whenever we can re-schedule.
We want you to know our prayers will include you and your families, for your continued Good Health and peace of mind, until we can get together again.
We ask God to Bless us all and our Communities.
Most Sincerely Yours,
President Paul M. Murphy
Vice President Pat Williams

Midwest Tool is a national group whose members use, collect and trade vintage tools, primarily woodworking tools but also other specialty tools. The group also has compiled volumes of vintage tool information. The demonstrations and trade table will feature 100’s of vintage tools. If you would like to find the value of granddads tool(s) this would be a likely group to help.

The fee is typically on the order of $60 for all three days. Saturday is the only day a member can register ($25) for a single day. Individuals who would like to join at the meeting can pay the $25 membership fee and receive complimentary registration for the Saturday only portion of the meeting.
