Print

It is time to pay your dues for 2017.

Click HERE to pay!img_0042

Still a value packed $30.00 for you and your immediate family.

This is the primary fundraiser that keeps the Evergreen Woodworkers Guild operating.

If you prefer, you can bring your dues (cash or check) to a meeting and we will take care of it there. Please note: We are discouraging sending dues payment to our PO Box as we currently do not have resources to make frequent collections from that post office.

Of course there are many benefits to membership. One of them is the discount you can get at stores like Rockler, Woodcraft, and others. EWWG Dues are TAX-DEDUCTIBLE.

For questions about Membership contact:  John B. Howard

Basics of Stock Preparation

We meet the second Monday of each month at the Edgewood Bible Church, 1720 Meridian Ave. E., Edgewood, WA. Doors open at 6:30 PM and the meeting is called to order at 7:00 PM. Be sure and “like” us on Facebook.

We all know that the boards we buy at the home center, woodworking store, lumber yard, or local sawmill need some preparation before they’re ready for joinery, right? Right!!

download-tableBoard Member George Knutson will cover the process he uses for flattening, squaring, and truing up boards so they’re ready for precision joinery.  Although hand tools can get the job done too, this will be a discussion about using power tools for this process. We’ll talk about the roles that the jointer, planer, bandsaw, and table saw can play, plus a few tricks you can use if you don’t have all of these tools.

You don’t want to miss this.
