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.
Video and Discussion – Wednesday, Jan 15, 2020 at 7:00pm,
By Steve Lockhart-Program Chair
What are your woodworking goals?
We’re going to try something a little different for the January meeting.
First, we will show Highland Woodworking’s episode 42 of the Highland Woodworker video series. The approximately 20 minute video presents Omaha Nebraska’s Dennis Zongker’s shop and business doing custom woodworking. Dennis has also authored a number of articles for “Fine Woodworking” magazine. My opinion is that Dennis seems to have reached the “pinnacle of success” in the woodworking world. From the quality, design, and (apparently) financial aspects, his shop and his work could hardly be any better. For me, this level would be unattainable even if I tried. I still enjoy woodworking though but I am wondering how other members feel after seeing this video.
Following this, there will be discussion and update regarding the Spring Show.
