Working Groups

We have many working groups for our members to participate in.  Some are designed for member education and others are working groups to complete projects such as toys or cabinets.  Learn about our Groups here.

Next General Membership Meeting is scheduled for Saturday, January 19th, 2019, 8:00am till Noon.

8:00am January SketchUp Workshop Topic: Box Project
All are welcome to attend the upcoming Guild SketchUp Workshop on 1/19/19 at 8:00 am. We will model Matt Kenny’s box 10 from his book “52 Boxes in 52 Weeks”. This model looks easy but the 45 degree corners have rabbets top and bottom which adds a little complexity to the model. Those new to SketchUp are welcome and everyone please bring your laptops if you can.

9:00am January Mentoring Series: Silent Auction
The Guild has received a generous donation of woodworking tools and accessories. There will be a Silent Auction conducted starting at 9am through the start of the General Meeting. Bring your check, cash or credit card and plan on picking up some really good deals; all proceeds will benefit the Guild’s General Fund. Check our Public or Closed Group Facebook pages for a list of the equipment available.

10:00am January Program: 2018 Annual Show Blue Ribbon Winners
We have asked our 2018 Annual Show Blue Ribbon Winners to share their projects, the thoughts behind them, the building and finishing techniques and any other tips, tricks, ideas they want to share. You don’t want to miss hearing from these talented Woodworkers and start getting ideas for your own 2019 Annual Show Projects!
We will also recognize our the People’s Choice Show Winner!!

Due to the number of projects we will be sharing from the Annual Show, there will not be a Show and Tell portion of the meeting this month. The Guild Meetings are open to the Public and Guests are always welcomed to come out and see what the Alabama Woodworkers Guild is all about!

2019 Annual Dues are due. Now is the time to renew your Alabama Woodworkers Guild annual $100 membership and not let any of the upcoming classes get away from you. You may join or renew by going to the website and clicking the “Join the Guild or Renew Your Membership Today" Big Orange Button to pay via PayPal.

Don’t wait to the last minute, get your dues payment off your “To Do” list today!
