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.

Upcoming Meeting:

Woodworking Forum

Wednesday, May 18, 2022 @ 7:00pm

By: NEWWG

We will be having a “Woodworking Forum”.  This will be a question and answer session in which members that attend the meeting will participate. For example: If a member has a question about carbide turning tools versus high speed steel, members can discuss the advantages and disadvantages. Another question may be about which wood finish to use or on the fundamentals of saw blades. Many people joined the guild to increase their knowledge about woodworking This meeting will give members a chance to ask questions and share answers and experience.

So come with questions, problems you have encountered, unique solutions you have found. Perhaps you can find a local mentor for your next project, or be a mentor for someone just getting started.
