Membership & Benefits

  • When do you meet? We meet monthly from September through May on the third Saturday of the month from 9:00 a.m. to noon at Lafayette Christian School (some road trips).
  • What else do you do? Beyond the meetings we annually attend the Feast of the Hunters Moon with our “Big Wheel” lathe to put on a show for families. We attend other local shows (art & community). Periodically our members will host how-to classes on certain topics (shaker oval boxes, Kumiko, etc.)
  • What can I learn? Meeting subjects have included scroll saw techniques, chip carving, finishing, sanding procedures, sharpening, project planning, lathe work, cabinet construction, bowl carving, band saw boxes, jig and fixture construction, tours to shops, and many other subjects.
