Calling All Woodworkers—Part 2

Just in case you missed last month’s article, here is this month’s introduction and reminder.

Since you have lived in SaddleBrooke, we all know that there is not a woodworking facility in SaddleBrooke—or is there? Many of you know that there is as much or more woodworking equipment in many garages in SaddleBrooke than in most cabinet shops.

But we are the Woodcarvers Club that meets in the Turquoise Room on Monday afternoons and all day Tuesday. Almost every week, we have people stop in to visit and inquire about woodworking (both building and repairs). Many of these visitors inquire about fixing a toy or collectable, repairing cutting boards or panels, refinishing furniture, or building something out of wood. But we are carvers, and not woodworkers, so we aren’t often able to help them.

In our community, we have many fine woodworkers who want to make and fix wooden items and help others. There are experienced refinishers, cabinet builders, and wood turners. Many of you folks know how to turn a finial for a broken chair, fix a wobbly leg, repair a broken drawer, or just cut pieces of wood to a requested size. Think of the satisfaction of helping your neighbors!

We would like to establish a database of woodworkers willing to offer their help. So, we thought, why not just start a Woodworking Club.

We won’t have the traditional woodworking facility, so it would be an informal club. The occasional meetings would be a good time to interact with other woodworkers to share ideas, learn about other’s projects, and maybe get together to see other’s shops, projects, and tools.
