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 2nd Thursday of every month 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.
