The Madison WI Woodworkers Guild has a forum on madwoodworkers@yahoogroups.com. They meet the 3rd Thursday each month.

I have seen the forum before and have listed the Guild but was not aware of when the meetings were … thank you very much

I am starting a site directed towards Midwest guild members and am trying to get as much info as I can to start with … My goal is to have it sustain itself someday. But, the main goal is to give local Midwest guild members a central place to get info about things in their area. I hope it works, but, I’m going to give it a try no matter what

I live in Fond du Lac … I hope to come check out your meetings some time … how much are you dues? What kind of events do you do? Did i hear of an outing to a lathe manufacturer you are doing or something like that ?

RavinHeart:
the group is considering dues but does not collect them yet. The next meeting will be at a lathe manufacturer. I cut a portion of the invite for the next meeting to paste here.

Robust Lathes in Mount Horeb, has invited us to tour his machine and fabrication shop where one of the world’s best lathes are manufactured. The 25” American Beauty, is featured in David Ellsworth’s new book “Ellsworth on Woodturning”
