Gary Rogowski's NW Woodworking Studio

The new year is upon us and with that an exciting new year of Guild events and activities. For our first meeting of the year we have a great opportunity to explore one of the other woodworking resources that exist in Portland. For over two decades Gary Rogowski, founder of Northwest Woodworking Studio, has been offering classes and teaching in his shop to anyone with a passion for woodworking. Gary focuses on traditional hand tool techniques but emphasizes contemporary design strategies.

In addition to a shop tour and discussing what programs are offered at NW Woodworking Studio, Gary will be presenting a short reading from his most recent published book, Handmade. In the mean time, you can further explore what Gary has to offer at 

Gary has established himself as a force within the woodworking community. Not only has he has been building furniture since 1974, he is also frequent contributor to a number of woodworking magazines. His acclaimed book The Complete Illustrated Guide to Joinery was released by Taunton Press in 2003 and still remains a valuable resource for woodworkers. Other publications include the DVD Router Joinery and a number of videos on Mortise and Tenons, Plywood Drawers, and Router Joinery.

The meeting will be held on Tuesday January 15th. Social time begins at 6:00 with the official meeting beginning at 7:00. New member orientation will meet at 6:30-6:45.  We will have the standard Show & Tell so bring your latest project.

See you all at the next meeting!
