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.

    Come one come all to a special on-site Guild meeting in September! Some may have heard of Creative Woodworking NW, but many have never visited. This will be a great opportunity to see a very awesome woodworking resource that is out there! In addition to providing a tour, Mike Redmond has graciously offered to provide food and drinks for the meeting as well!

    Creative is located on the east side of the river at 1036 SE Taylor St, Portland, OR. There will be limited parking available in their lot so mostly street parking.

    Creative Woodworking NW is a family ran business. The owner of Creative, Mike Redmond, began his business in 1982. Creative offers a variety of services such as custom molding, shaper work, resawing and surface sanding. So if you have a large project that needs a larger machine Creative is the place to get it done! Creative can also create custom molding, siding and flooring and can match any profile you might have.

    So come out and get a tour of Creative Woodworking and see what they have to offer and some amazing tools!

    Editor (Bob) Note:  They offer a great service, a wide (very) belt sander for walk-in projects.  I have had a number of large pieces (28" wide) done with beautiful results.  You do call to make an appointment.  Shop rate is $125/hour and on this machine it's 1/2 hour minimum.  It's a great deal if you have several projects to do, or team up with a friend.  ASK about it at the meeting to better understand.
