Monthly Programs

Each month the guild conducts a general program that is informative, educational and enjoyable for our members. Topics cover a range of woodworking techniques.

Programs are held on the 3rd Tuesday of every month at the Multnomah Arts Center auditorium, starting at 7:00 pm, unless otherwise specified.  Social time starts about 6:30, a time to meet your fellow woodworkers and trade tips and stories.  A new member orientation session usually occurs off to the side about 6:45 pm.  The Board of Directors meets at 5:30 pm before the program. Anyone is welcome to attend.

We are always on the lookout for suggestions of topics or improvements we can make to these monthly programs.  If you have input please contact the program coordinator or any Board member.

    iT'S that time of year and with all of this wonderful weather it also means that it's time for the annual combined Guild Picnic/Meeting on Tuesday, August 15th! Come one and all out to spend the afternoon with other Guild members and their families. There will be great people, food and drinks! Be sure to bring your kids or grandkids, there is a great play structure right next to our picnic shelter along with some wooden ‘Builder Boards’ for them to use. We again have the pleasure of meeting at Summerlake Park in Tigard, OR. This is a wonderful covered section of the park reserved for us and the setting could not be more beautiful. The Guild will provide chicken (provided by Joe Sanders), beverages and tableware. Just bring the dish of your choice (with serving utensils) to share. 

    2 X 4 Contest: Complete your entry and bring it --- the audience will be the judge. You can use a single 2”x4”x8’ long board to create whatever you can come up with! 

    John Moeller of Waldemar Wood Works - Live demonstration of cutting a live edge slab from a log. John is a great resource for live edge slabs and can provide on-site milling.

    Show & Tell: Bring your Show & Tell items for display before and during the meeting. Tables/Chairs: There will not be enough seating at the existing picnic tables. To be sure that you have seating, please bring along chairs for you and your guests. We also need some additional portable tables for eating and display. If you would be willing to provide one or more of these, please contact CJ Marquardt at 503-267-1930 or email him at
