First Meeting of the Southern West Virginia Chapter

This post was written by Stephen Duffy of +WV Woodshed (WV Woodshed), MWA member in West Virginia.

This post is simply a call for participation in the initial Southern West Virginia & South Western Virginia Chapter of the Modern Woodworkers Association. The meeting is to be held Saturday, June 15th at 10:00am. We anticipate the meeting will last 1 to 1-1/2 hours.

In the area I live there are currently a limited number of woodworking resources. The few that do exist are niche' or skill specific, as in carving, turning, etc. Through my website I have met other woodworkers interested in developing a local community for all skill sets to discuss and share information about their individual passions or anything and everything woodworking.

Ron Hart, Owner/Operator of Virginia Hardware (a Rockler Affiliate Store) has generously opened his doors to host our initial and subsequent meetings. This initial meeting will be geared towards setting up the group, organizing a schedule for future meetings and creating/brainstorming concepts for meeting topics and member participation. Some ideas for topics include:

1. What's On Your Bench
2. Cool Tools Used In Your Shop
3. Technique Of The Month
4. Show And Tell
5. Just Showing Off

The address for the meeting is:

Virginia Hardware (a Rockler Affiliate Store)
1411 N. Walker Street
Princeton, WV 24740
