Eastern Massachussetts Guild of Woodworkers

Message from the President

The weather has turned suddenly cold, with snowflakes in the air. This is the perfect time to hunker into our shops and create some sawdust!

Our theme of "embellishments" continues in November, December, and January. On November 8, Will Neptune will demonstrate his approach to applied carving. December 13, the new Woodcraft store in Walpole will host us for a session on Decorative Moldings. And on January 10, Phil Lowe will show us Relief Carving.

I often tell my friends how lucky we are to live in this area, where we have access to some of the best woodworkers and teachers of woodworking in the country. I hope you will join us! And don't forget to bring your chair.

Here we are deep into summer, but as we approach the end of July, I know you are all wondering “What does the coming year for the Guild involve”. Well, behind the scenes, folks have been hard at work putting together the events for the coming year.
