CFWC Meeting Change November 14th

The meeting is moved one week early because of Thanksgiving!!!!!!
This meeting is time for the experienced members to pass on their knowledge.
I have been in the business for 46 years and learn something every meeting
from our members. Just because you know it all, that does not mean you can’t

learn more or remember something you forgot!! LOL

Woodcrafters will meet Wednesday, November 14, at 1:00 in the Clubhouse for our regular business meeting. Visitors and prospective members are welcome. Afterward, we will carpool to Roy Larson’s shop in Connestee, where he and John Hallimore will demonstrate flattening wide slabs with a shop-built router jig. Roy will also demonstrate the compact dust collection system he installed in his wood lathe shop. For more information about our past programs, check out our our website: cfwc.woodpress.com.

CFWC Sharpening Event This Wednesday 9am to 3pm

Come and help. All or part of the day. Whatever time you can help.

Woodcrafters will hold a Sharpening Event on Wednesday, Sept. 19 from 9am till 3pm in the Atagahi Park Pavilion. Woodcrafters will sharpen garden and landscaping tools, scissors, kitchen knives and chain saws (chains off bar, only), but not circular or hand saws. Proceeds will benefit the Connestee Falls Employee Fund.

New members can learn to sharpen(on the job training). The teachers learn also
by explaining their techniques. There is not just one way of doing things!
Speaking for myself, You can always teach an old dog new tricks!!
