Long time lurker, finally registered on forums. Great site. I’ll get to the point.

Is there a website, or an effective way to find out if there’s a woodworkers group in my area, and if not…I’d like to start one.

A little about me:
I’ve been doing woodworking for about 5 years, and finally getting to serious projects, such a desks and tabletop and glue ups (wife keeps wanting to know why I keep buying clamps… ;/ ).

There are at least 2 others in my area I talk with about my projects, but I’m the most experienced in all the areas that we discuss. I’m looking for a group to learn more, because while I know the most in our group, I really don’t know that much at all…

Anyways, I figured I’d say hi, you guys are pretty great. I gleaned a ton of finishing information from this place.

I live in Orange, Texas.

I created a series here at LJ about Woodworking Clubs , but saw no activity about Texas.

I’m not aware of any authoritative list, but several sites have built lists; unfortunately, they quickly become outdated. Mostly, I search – both here at LJ and generally with Google.

Good luck!
