Default Woodworking clubs, help needed

We are working to assemble a list of woodworking clubs and we need your assistance. Please respond with the name of any club you know of and the email to contact the club. We will post the information so new members can find local groups to participate in.

Does a mallet qualify as a woodworking "club"?

No Ralph. A guitar does, but only if you remember "El Kabong."

Having clubs is a good thing and I hope some will start.

Wisdom: Where experience and knowledge combine and become one.

"We are all one decision away from Stupid!!"

Lamentations 3:22-23

"How often we sacrifice the permanent plans of God on the altar of immediate solutions"

I have a very good memory, just short is all.

Actually, considering the solitary nature of woodworking, don't woodworking clubs fall into the oxymoron category? I mean, a bunch of people getting together to do something individually?

It could be completely social, however. A face-to-face forum, so to speak, where someone with a real club prevents the "My chisel is sharper than your chisel" sort of "discussions".

There are many clubs out there, and like our small "Sawdust Saturdays" woodworking is more fun when shared with friends. One of the clubs you will see on the list will be: Routerforums Detroit. We are planning a trip in 3 weeks to a lumber mill. We are also planning on doing a small community service project once a year. Jerry, didnt Bob warn you that you are in the hot seat to lead Routerforums Atlanta?
