The adventures of Fay and Bob as they move beyond the 9 to 5 life

Greenville Woodworkers Guild

On Monday night Bob and I went to the Greenville Woodworkers Guild meeting.   I have written about them before.   They have over 600 members!   My favorite part is “show and tell” when the woodworkers bring in items they have made.   Absolutely beautiful.  After the “show and tell” a representative from Minwax talked about how to use stains and finishes.   Makes me wonder how I ever managed not to ruin all the things I have refinished.   Guess I had beginners luck.   Last year Minwax gave this group a $5000 award.

Greenville Woodworkers Guild earns Grand Prize by building wooden office cabinetry and holiday toys for the Meyer Center for Special Needs Children.

Like Greenville Newcomers, the Woodworkers Guild has a big component of their organization where they do projects to help others.

Enjoy the photos.  Click on the little photo to see a big photo.  These items were so beautiful I got goosebumps holding them.   I never knew there were so many different woods!   Bob will be taking some classes from them at their shop to learn how to use some of the equipment.
