We are a unique association of woodworking enthusiasts of all interests and skill levels, novice to expert, where information and techniques are shared.

Monthly meetings and Special Interest Gatherings (SIGs) are held throughout the year, September through June.  We have three Group Coordinators who pool their expertise to ensure that a comprehensive and interesting program is delivered.   Check the Meeting & Event Calendar page for further details on meetings and gatherings.
