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, November 17th, 2018, 8:00am till Noon.

8:00am August SketchUp Workshop Topic:  Cherry Side Table

9:00 am Mentoring Series/Annual Show Ribbon Winners Show and Tell

This month we will be celebrating the Ribbon Winners from the 2018 Annual Show. If you missed the Show at the Hoover Library, this would be a good time to see some of the Award Winning Projects from the show. This will be a good time also to ask questions and learn some of the tips and techniques from fellow Guild Members.

There will not be a dedicated portion of the General Meeting for Show and Tell for the next couple of months to see how the revised format works and get your feedback.

10:00am November Program: 2018 Toy Group Finale

This year’s Toy Chairmen: Sandra McMillan and Bob Watkins; will share the status of the Toy Group, our most continuous Community Service effort within the Guild. We have had some new folks to join the group, some new toy designs and new partners both inside and outside of Alabama who have benefited from our Toys!

Learn how you too can become one of Santa’s helpers and bring Miles of Smiles in this great group!

As always, this meeting is open to the General Public and members are encouraged to bring family and friends to learn all about the outstanding opportunities available with the Alabama Woodworkers Guild!
