I had this idea years ago and things just did not work out. I am thinking of trying this year. I have a location we can meet in North Canton what do you think?

I now live in Bath Township and would love to get in on this. I used to be a professional furniture maker.

I belong to three different local clubs. One turners, one for woodworking in general and one that has a shop to use. The shop has a meeting room where the other two clubs meet. There is about 60 in the turners club, 60 in the woodworkers club and over three hundred in the club that runs the shop. All members found out by word of mouth. We have a great group of people and don’t want to advertise 300+ is plenty. The shops largest crowd for working is about 20 at anytime. People tend to have the day and time they want to come and generally don’t deviate from their schedule. A lunch is usually served cost is 5.00 and includes a drink. The food is prepared by the volunteer host on that day.
