Guild of Oregon Woodworkers

Monthly Programs

Each month the guild conducts a general program that is informative, educational and enjoyable for our members. Topics cover a range of woodworking techniques.

Programs are held on the 3rd Tuesday of every month at the Multnomah Arts Center auditorium, starting at 7:00 pm, unless otherwise specified.  Social time starts about 6:30, a time to meet your fellow woodworkers and trade tips and stories.  A new member orientation session usually occurs off to the side about 6:45 pm.  The Board of Directors meets at 5:30 pm before the program. Anyone is welcome to attend.

We are always on the lookout for suggestions of topics or improvements we can make to these monthly programs.  If you have input please contact the program coordinator or any Board member.

    And It's  Board Member Election Night!

    Our next meeting will be held on Tuesday, November 20th at the Multnomah Arts Center rather than Madrone Studio.

    Please come join us for an enlightening evening filled with various Guild instructors and heads of the various Guild shop groups. They will be discussing some of the classes that they teach or the shop group that they are a part of and bring examples of the kinds of projects we work on in the Guild shop.

    Some of the instructors that will be in attendance are Asa Christiana, a professional woodworker and former editor of Fine Woodworking magazine. Julie Niemeyer, our Guild Registrar, & Dennis Dolph will be talking about the up coming Build a Stool From Scratch class. Other presenters will talk about the Project Build, Toys, and the Community Project Groups. There are some really amazing things being built  by these various groups and teachers and you don't want to missing seeing everything up close. These are the faces of you Guild. Come meet them and hear about what your Guild is doing!

    Another very important event at this meeting is our annual election of next years board members. Be sure to come in to vote on the new board positions and welcome in the new board members!

    The social time for the meeting will start at 6:00 with the main meeting beginning at 7:00

    Annual Holiday Party Save the Date!

    The annual December holiday party is just around the corner. As usually it will be held at the Mt. Tabor Presbyterian Church on 5441 SE Belmont Street in Portland. The party will be held in the evening on December 13th which is the Second Thursday of the month. 

    It's a potluck event, but the Guild will provide a ham and lasagnas. It's not too early to start to think about what delicious meal you would like to bring to share! As always there is a gift exchange. If you bring a gift you will go home with a gift. This is a chance to make a special gift to share with another member. While we encourage members to craft their gifts, purchased gifts are also very welcome! There will be more details about the event as the time gets closer.

    If you plan to attend, please click on Register so we have an idea of how many people but if you do not register, please come anyways.  Spouses and kids are welcome - it is a family event.

    Volunteers Needed

    Like many events that the Guild puts on, volunteers are essential to helping make everything a success. There are a number of small tasks that I could use some assistance with from collecting some of the food to setting up at the facility. 

    Please contact CJ Marquardt at either 503-267-1930 or if you would like to be a part of making a memorable evening or if you have any other questions! Thank you!
