June's Virtual Meeting
For this month's general membership meeting, we are excited to welcome back Shannon Rogers. Shannon is a well-known wood-worker with a strong focus on the use of hand tools.
Starting with the regular meeting on June 10th, the Guild will offer a four-session class on hand sawing taught by Shannon Rogers. The class will be an on-line rather than in-person class. All sessions will be recorded and access provided to all members. The class will be free to all members.
Session 1: Thursday, June 10th at 7:00 PM - Fundamentals of Saws (1 hour)
Session 2: Tuesday, June 15th at 7:00 PM - Saw Sharpening (1 hour)
Session 3: Thursday, June 17th at 7:00 PM - Bench Build - Part 1 (1 hour)
Session 4: Tuesday, June 22nd at 7:00 PM - Bench Build - Part 2 (1.5 hours)
Guests are welcome to attend our general membership meeting at no cost. However, as this is a paid event intended for active members, only members will be allowed to attend sessions 2 - 4 or access to the recordings afterwards.
A Zoom link will be sent on the day of the meeting to each Guild member we have on ﬁle. Simply click on that link a few minutes prior to the meeting time to activate your Zoom session. If you are a guest and would like to join us for our general meeting, you can fill out our contact us form and request to join the virtual meeting. When we send out the meeting info to the general members we will include you as well.
Please be our guest at one of our monthly meetings for an informative evening filled with woodworking information. The Annapolis Woodworkers Guild is a 501(c)3 nonprofit service organization founded in 1980. Our monthly Show & Tell display of items that members have built will cover the gamut from beginner woodworker to master craftsman.
Preserve the tradition, culture and history of woodworking
Provide charitable efforts to needy organizations
Our website is intended to capture who we are and our past history. We offer training on almost all facets of woodworking, a DVD library, and a mentor list for those needing assistance. This information is located in one place for our members and likewise it offers non-members a window into who we are.
Due to the health risks of Covid, we have moved our monthly general membership meeting to a Zoom meeting still hosted the second Thursday of every month at 7:00 PM Est. Guests are still welcome and encouraged to attend, however we ask that you contact us via the contact us page expressing interest so we can send out a personal invite with more information about the meeting.
Once in person meetings are safe to resume we will send out further information to the general membership as well as post the meeting information on the website.
