Topic tags/keywords: club woodworking woodturning carving

I thought I would start a thread where people could post links to their local woodworking clubs. Hopefully Martin will add a club directory to the site one of these days.

The ones in my area (Sacramento, CA) are:

Sacramento Area Woodworkers – http://www.sacramentoareawoodworkers.com/
NorCal Woodturners – http://www.norcalwoodturners.org/
Capital Woodcarvers Association – http://www.karving.org/

Louisville has one, Kyana woodcrafters club. http://www.kyanawoodcrafters.com/default.htm it is sponsored by the local Woodcraft store. Meetings are 1st Thursday of the month @ 7:30 at the Walden school on Westport Rd. There is a turning club but I don’t know their name. They meet at the same place on the second Thursday of the month.
