Welcome to The Niagara Woodworking Club

We are located in the Niagara Peninsula of Ontario Canada. Member's skill levels range from novice to skilled professional. Some make all or part of their living from the craft. Interests cover the entire range of woodworking. We place a strong emphasis on member participation. Our focus is to have an inviting atmosphere that inspires everyone and furthers the growth of knowledge and skill for each and every member. If you would like information about joining the club or attending a meeting please contact Kevin at: biff_kpv@yahoo.ca

June's Meeting: Annual BBQ and Swap Meet

Plenty of deals were to be had as members brought in some no longer needed items that others in the club may enjoy.

The longest shave contest was a success as members used the knowledge they learned from this years meetings to fine tune their hand planes and create the longest thinnest shave they can. It was very close but Andrew C. was the winner of a Veritas apron plane.

The Nail Driving Contest was an exercise in humility for some as members had to drive a 4 inch spike into spruce in the least amounts of hits as possible. We had a tie at seven hits between Don S. and Darryl G. so it went to a nail off where Darryl G. pulled off the victory. Darryl G. won a two pack of Makita sanders.

This concludes the season for the Niagara Woodworking Club and next season will start again on September 15th. Thanks for the great year and we'll see everyone in the fall!
