The Midwest Woodworkers' Association is a
non-for-profit organization founded in 1983.
- Monthly Meetings:
meet once a month at various places of interest to woodworkers, such
as cabinet shops and members shops. Meetings are the 4th Monday,
except when it conflicts with a holiday and then an alternate date will
be announced. Meetings consist of general business,
announcements, Show and Tell, a presentation and drawing for a door
prize. Presentations are always on a topic of interest to
woodworkers and are combined with demonstrations. Past demos have
included topics such as sharpening tools, using scroll saws, lathe
turning and swap meets.
We maintain a library of books, videos, magazines and plans for the use
of any member. The library is available at our monthly meetings.
- Toy Project: Many
are involved with making wooden toys for children in
need. In 2006 we distributed 2500 toys to various organizations
including: Ronald McDonald House, Rainbow house, Coyote Hill,
the Salvation Army, and various Churches and Day Care centers in
- Newsletter: Our
is sent either by mail or e-mail and informs members of the
location and content of the next meeting. There are interesting
articles, hints, announcements, along with a recap of the previous
meeting or event.
