This Month's Meeting

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

Tool Talk: Frank Taylor on Parallel Wood Clamps.

Our March meeting will be at the Sequoia High School Wood Shop. We will have a tour and talk by Ethan Sanford, the Wood Shop instructor. The wood shop is brand new with state of the art woodworking equipment. Many machines are still in boxes and Ethan will ask for volunteers in setting up the machines, making jigs and helping with the instruction.

There is even a possibility that members could use the machines once set up. In addition, we may be able to have more meetings there.

Come see a beautiful shop. In addition, there will be more information about our March 31st 25th Anniversary of BAWA celebration with a dinner and a chance to see and hear Sam Maloof, a woodworking legend.
