Greetings, fellow LJ’ers. Recently moved to Fox Lake in Lake County Illinois. Searched the internet looking for a woodworking club in the area, but came up empty. Does anyone know of one? Thanks in advance for your help.

fuzzface I practically live just down the street from you, in Antioch. Maybe we could join forces for mutual benefit (more or less).

It’s a little drive for you, but there is a very active club in Batavia -the Fox Valley Woodworkers. We meet once a month on the second Tuesday of each month. You can find all the information at There is also DuPage Woodworkers, but that’s an even longer drive, although still a very active club. Don’t know of any clubs in the northern suburbs, though. Let me know if you are coming to the next meeting and I’ll be sure to show you around.

After attending meetings of several WW clubs, my impression is that they’re little more than a bunch of old farts sitting around the cracker barrel talking about tools and work benches, and maybe the knickknacks they’re gonna make for the Xmas show.
