Furniture and General Woodworking SIG

Hand Plane IconThe Furniture and General Woodworking SIG covers miscellaneous flat woodworking and more.  In addition to furniture making, we have had presentations on stained glass, repairing music boxes, making your own hardware, making tools, inlay, finishing, shop layouts, SketchUp, design, and more.

We meet on the first Thursday of each month, from September to June.  We usually meet at CP Rochester, unless otherwise noted. We begin gathering about 6:15 PM, to get set up and have a chance to chat with other members.

The actual meeting begins at 6:30 PM with a few brief comments. From there we get right into the featured presentation, where someone will talk about making boxes, jigs and fixtures, toys, setting up or making our shops more productive, tools, finishing, furniture and just about anything that is woodworking related. We keep some time open for attending members to discuss projects, tools, encountered woodworking problems, solutions, general questions, club news etc.

So why not stop in and joins for the evening! Hope to see you there.

REMEMBER…. Any day you can make sawdust is a good day, and if you can’t make it, then at least you can talk about it.
