News of the Guild

Fellow woodworkers. Welcome to the New Year. Keep warm and remember that space heaters and sawdust probably won't mix well. Work safely. Cold hands move slowly and dry hands let tools slip.

We're still actively in need of a Vice President. Be a part of the future your Guild. There are lots of members who will help you in the job.

From the President

Greetings!

Dues are Due:  It's that time again to collect dues.  The amount is the same as last year ($20) and the collector is Greg Guertin (both Membership Chairman and Treasurer).  Money collected is used to fund (in- part) our September picnic and December dinner, challenge awards, and administrative expenses (i.e. website fee).  
Programs:  It looks like this year we'll have plenty of good programs and a number of project and skill challenge opportunities for everyone to get involved.  This month, equipment maintenance considerations (specifically the jointer - the key for starting right) will be presented, as well as project inspirations, and clamping/glueup/sanding tips.
Speaking of maintenance, December and January are good months for cleaning, organizing and performing equipment maintenance.  Regarding this last item, Don Newsome has spent quite abit of time putting together the following list of U-Tube videos that will help you get the year off to a good start.  Thanks Don.

Editors Notes

We continue to grow in the social media world through Facebook and Instagram. I could use a 'helper' who is more attuned to those platforms than I am to help us use them better. Also, I've added the Bylaws to the website, as well as an FAQ page.

See you Monday - Karl
