Monthly Programs

Each month the guild conducts a general program that is informative, educational and enjoyable for our members. Topics cover a range of woodworking techniques.

Programs are held on the 3rd Tuesday of every month at the Multnomah Arts Center auditorium, starting at 7:00 pm, unless otherwise specified.  Social time starts about 6:30, a time to meet your fellow woodworkers and trade tips and stories.  A new member orientation session usually occurs off to the side about 6:45 pm.  The Board of Directors meets at 5:30 pm before the program. Anyone is welcome to attend.

We are always on the lookout for suggestions of topics or improvements we can make to these monthly programs.  If you have input please contact the program coordinator or any Board member.

    Looking for a project for the winter? Have some extra space in your shop you just can’t quite figure out what to do with? The answer to both questions will be presented at the next Guild meeting! Ray Klebba, who is the owner of White Salmon BoatWorks, is going to make the journey from White Salmon to our monthly meeting to provide a presentation on the art and process that he uses to create absolutely stunning watercraft.

    Ray is a master artisan with over 35 years of experience in designing and building award-winning boats. The boats that Ray builds are more than just boats, they are works of art that Ray calls “Functional Art”. He makes a variety of boat styles, such as sea kayaks, canoes, and rowboats, using the woodstrip building method. For over 15 years Ray offered classes to ‘build your own boa’, but has since focused on building boat kits, plans and custom order boats.

    If you ever wanted to see how to put a boat together this is an opportunity you don’t want to miss! Come to the program on October 17th at the Multnomah Arts Center. Social time starts at 6:30 pm.

    As always, we will have our raffle and Show and Tell. Bring your treasurers to share your experience!
