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.
Program Wed July 17, 2019 7pm, Arcways, Inc.
By Guild Member, Steve Lockhart
Bob Welhouse, Longtime Woodworkers Guild member and Longtime employee of Arcways, Inc has arranged a tour exclusively for the Guild.
Arcways is in the business of building (my words) ultra high end wooden staircases for use in (you guessed it) ultra high-end homes and commercial buildings. I have been totally impressed by the excellence of craftsmanship of their work as well as the innovative designs. They use CNC technology to craft wood into shapes that would be next to impossible to craft by hand or using conventional tools.
A few photos will convince you that this will be a very worthwhile tour. For more photos check out Arcways.com.
A map is included below for those who don’t rely on their GPS.
Address: Arcways, Inc. 1076 Ehlers Rd. Neenah, WI
