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.

    • All over Portland

    First off I would like to thank everyone who has volunteered their shops and their time to the upcoming shop tours at the end of July. This event is shaping up to be awesome with over a dozen shops on the list! Regardless if you have a completed shop or a work in progress, having the opportunity to see others shops in person is a great chance to not only get some new ideas, but also to network and get to know your fellow Guild members!

    Here are the members that have volunteered to open their shops:

    Alexander Anderson, Dennis Brown, Lee Eggers, Ed Ferguson, Kris Kirkman, Chris Lehr, CJ Marquardt, David Mealey, Don Mickey, Tim Moore, Julie Niemeyer, Bob Oswald and Morgan Patton.

    The list may vary a bit between now and the event, but on the weekend of July 28th & 29th these shop will be available to visit. Each shop will sign up for a date and and list certain hours that they will be available. Some shops may also have other things to offer such as surplus shop equipment and wood. There will be another email that goes out to the membership later this month with details on each of the shops. See you all there!
