    Guild Monthly Lunch gathering Comes to Zoom

    In an effort to allow members to keep the comradery of our monthly lunch meetings going, we will be hosting a Zoom get together at 11:30 AM on the first Monday of the month.

    Since it's going to be difficult to eat lunch together, we thought we could go around the gathered group and briefly discuss what we may or may not have been doing in your shop. If you have any pictures of items you'd like to share, have them available on your PC or Phone (depending on what you're connecting to the meeting with), and we'll be able to share your screen.

    For Security reasons we do not publish the meeting information on the website.  We will send out the invite in the weekly Guild email the Sunday prior to the luncheon.

    The Getting Started class is a continuation of the safety process in good woodworking practices taught in the Intro to the Guild class.

    Getting Started is a required class for those needing experience with the safe and appropriate use of portable power tools, prior to starting the path to the Guild’s Shop Certification classes.

    Drawing up a plan and cutting list

    What happens at the lumber yard; grading, moisture content, grain and figure.

    Wood characteristics, hidden hazards

    Simple approaches to accuracy,

    Specific tool safety techniques.

    The final section of the class will be using these tools to create a cutting board. Material provided by the Guild.

    Please review the Guild’s PPE (personal protection equipment) policy from the Intro to the Guild class.

    Have all your PPE for this class. Approved wrap around safety glasses, hearing protection, a dust mask (these tools are not connected to the dust collection system)

    In addition, follow the COVID-19 virus protection protocols required for Shop use

    Class size is four students. Each student will have their own area in the Shop with each tool to be demonstrated. No tool sharing. Safe distancing.

    Masks in place and hands washed before entering the Shop.

    Dress appropriately for working in the Shop.

    The handouts will be reviewed in class.

    Carving SIG - Leroy Setziol

    The Zoom link will be emailed to registrants and posted here two days before the event


    Jan 12th - Leroy Setziol, Oregon's Most Famous Carver

    He produced over 1,000 wood carvings before he died in 2016.  His work is memorialized with two major art museum exhibitions and a 35 minute documentary.  By the time he got the commission to produce the carvings at Salishan Lodge in 1965 he was already well known.  He usually worked on a massive scale with noted architects and his works can also still be seen at Skamania Lodge and the entry to the chapel at the University of Portland.

    This program will review his works, his life and the works of his adult daughter, Monica Setziol Phillips, who lives in the house her father built near Sheridan, but blends her weavings with carvings inspired by her dad.

    Please register so we can send you the Zoom link and follow-up after the meeting.  For questions contact Larry Wade at lpwade@gmail.com

    Note:  If you have never participated in a Zoom meeting contact Larry Wade at lpwade@gmail.com at least several days in advance to help you.

    Location - online with Zoom
