Upcoming Events


Our meetings in the past were held the same night every month but because of changes in meeting places, each month the night we meet will probably vary. If you are on our email list you should get emails with more of when and where our meetings are going to be held. 
This is necessary so that we can find places to hold our meetings that have the right equipment that we need for the topics or demo's for each meeting. Please look below for details as to when and where our meetings will be. If you get on our mailing list you will receive more details !

On Saturday June 16th we will be having our annual hands-on hand carving workshop/pitch-in picnic dinner. We will start at 3:00PM and will be at Merre's home in the Broadripple area. Rallie Murphy will be leading/teaching us hand carving again this year. You can bring your own carving project or you can purchase carving blanks from Rallie (at a really low price). He also has carving knives and Kevlar gloves for purchase at a very reasonable price. We will provide a main food item and ask that everyone bring a side, salad or desert. You can let me know any time if you plan to attend and what type of pitch in item you plan to bring. I will email direction to Merre’s house to members closer to the date. 


In July we will be helping the SAW’s Inc organization build a disability ramp for someone in need. It will most likely be somewhere in Marion County. We won’t know the location until a couple of weeks before. We will need up to 8 ladies to help cut and pre-assemble ramp sections on Thursday morning July 12th starting at 8:30AM at their shop on the north west side of Indy. Then we will need up to 8 ladies to help build the ramp at the home we are assigned to on Saturday July 14th starting at 8:30AM. Don’t worry if you are new to woodworking, they will have a project leader and all of the power tools that are needed and they will give assignments and show us what we are to do. You will need to bring work gloves and safety glasses. I will let you know any other details closer to the date. They are a great group of people that are very positive to work with. Please check out their web site and read about what they do and some of the people they have helped. It is a very worthwhile project for us to help with. You can let me know any time if you plan to help and which day.
