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 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.
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 Christmas Party – (No Monthly Guild Meeting)
Saturday, December 10, 2022 @ 5:00pm
** Eating around 6:00pm **
Our annual Christmas party is scheduled for Saturday Dec 11th. The location is the same as past years, UWGB, Ecumenical center (Richard Mauthe Center). The doors open around 4 p.m. and we plan to eat around 6 pm. We usually set-up around 4:30 if you would like to help with that, come early. When we are set up, it is a good time to sit and visit.
The guild provides the main course, meat, drinks, plates, napkins and utensils. Members bring a dish to pass, salad, dessert, or hors d’oeuvres. This year we plan to change the menu a little. Instead of pulled pork, beef and gravy, and ham. We plan on having mashed potatoes with beef tips and gravy, vegetable, some ham and buns. If you have a better idea, or want the old menu, let us know soon.
There will have a sign-up sheet at the November meeting. In the past the club provided a few door prizes and some members brought home made items to add to the prizes as well. If you can’t make the meeting, e-mail or call Pete Schuh by Dec. 6th, if you plan to attend.
Pete has done the Christmas party for a few years, if someone is interested in setting it up, getting the food, and decorations, let me know. I can work with you.
