Woodworking this Sunday

With the banner stand project behind us, we have a day in the shop to work on our own stuff! If you have any wood projects you need or want for Pennsic, now’s your chance to get advice and help making them. If you have no ideas, bring a 6 or 8 foot board from the hardware store and we’ll help you figure out something useful to make from it.

Join us on Sunday, July 14th for the last Woodworking Guild Shop Day before Pennsic, in Ishiyama’s shop in Point Breeze, from 10am to 2pm.

Send email to “woodworking (at) debatablelands.org” if you have any questions or need the address.

Also, don’t forget our next planning meeting on Thursday, August 22nd where we’ll be planning out our autumn schedule and post-Pennsic projects.

Wood Shop Day 04.28 report

It was a bit chillier than expected, and a lot less sunny than hoped for, so we were not able to spread out into the driveway. In spite of the weather, we did manage to get a lot of work done under cover in the garage, much more than one person could have done safely alone, so thanks to everybody who was able to make it. We did a bunch of cutting and shaping to make pieces. Next steps involve cutting joinery onto the pieces, which means a lot of marking of the locations for that joinery first.

The Woodworking Guild’s next planning meeting is scheduled for Thursday, May 23rd from 7pm to 9pm at the Panera in Oakland.

The next Woodworking Guild shop day is scheduled for Sunday, June 2nd, but the time and location has yet to be determined.
