Topic tags/keywords: networking new hampshire new england meeting portsmouth local resource question


I am always looking to branch out (pun intended) to other woodworkers. I’d like to specifically inquire as to the members here from the NH area (Portsmouth, in particular) and elsewhere in New Hampshire and New England. Who do we have here, and are there any networking or other get-togethers from lumberjock members from this (these) areas?

I’m a little envious. Wish I lived that close to my favorite playground. Just take yourself over to 44 Timberswamp Rd. in Hampton,NH. Go visit with the crazy Windsor Chair makers at the Institute. A word for the wise; don’t spend any time talking about Shaker chairs or you may be beheaded!

yeah, man. I’m in Providence, RI. I’m always looking to network with other woodworkers. Being pretty green to this level of woodworking, I feel it’s extremely important to have knowledgeable people, who are also in the field, around.

I’m on Cape Cod. We had a great New England get together last summer.
Hopefully, we can do it again.

Hey Sky,

I’m in North Londonderry just ear shot from the Manchester Airport. I lived a few years in the Portsmouth area and loved it. Born and raised in Berlin.

Winchester, MA here. as mentioned, we had a get together in Lexington, MA just a few months ago, and will probably have more of those coming up this year. Welcome to Lumberjocks! always nice to see another new englander around.

Hey Barry, are you flying commercial? or private? any skydiving related flights? (sorry for the hijack)

In 1642, my 9th great-grandfather Andrew Ward and my 11th great-grandfather Richard Law contributed (with about 40 other people) to the purchase of a tract of land 7 miles wide and 10 miles long that they would name Stamford, Connecticut. Does that make me a New Englander?

I live on the western side of the state in Keene. There was a New England get together that Purplev put together… I’m not aware of anything else in the works.
