BAWA Apparel. Hey! Be the first one in your block to be decked out in the latest BAWA finery. Wear the finery to the meetings, to the wood shows or just show your envious woodworker friends. Jay Perrine is the source of BAWA baseball caps ($10), and BAWA work shirts ($35 or so). You can contact him at or 408/378-1585.

Or how about a nice laser-engraved name tag for BAWA meetings? Check out Mike Cooper's. He can get you one for $8. ( or 510/471-6934.)

This Month's Meeting

September 15th (3rd Thursday) 6:30 pm

NOTE-This is a catered dinner. If you have not signed up by 9/6 then there will be no food available for you.

This month we will have our 4th Annual Fall Kickoff Dinner and a Competitive Show and Tell. This will be a catered dinner and as you all have been reminded and know, a seat must have been reserved by September 6th. The competitive Show and Tell will consist of two categories. One is the Pro (people who sell their work) and Lovers of Woodworking (who don't sell their work). The voting will be by the members present with a prize for each category. Judging from past dinners, it will be a good evening with a chance to talk to some of the people that somehow there was never time during the meetings to talk to. Our partners and friends will also have a chance to see what other members do and their results from all that sawing, applying finish and swearing. And why thousands of dollars have to be spent to get just the right saw or machine.
