I am a member of the St. Louis Woodworkers Guild, of which there are about 110 members who get together monthly to exchange ideas about woodworking with emphasis on education and safety. Most are amateur, weekend woodworkers, including me. Visit the Guild's website at http://www.stlwoodworkersguild.org for more info. Meetings are held 7-9 PM on the 3rd Thursday each month. You are welcome to come to Guild meetings if you are in or near St. Louis.
