February CMWA Meeting

Wednesday February 15th, 2016 at 7:30 PM
St. John's Woodshop, Collegeville, MN

Our February meeting will definitely be an interesting one. It is going to be held at St. Johns University and we will be going on a tour. Starting off we will be in the woodshop taking a look at all their tools and what they have to work with. Then we will go on a little hike to the guesthouse (Building 7) to see some of their completed projects and if time allows we will end at the Library (Building 12). We will meet at a little later than our usual meeting time; 7:30 on the February 15th. You can learn more about the SJU Woodshop on their website.

I have attached an image of the St. Johns campus for clarity. We can park in front of the Powerhouse (Building 24) and then we can meet in the Woodshop (Building 25).

This January in addition to our election please bring in a tool or a jig (or a picture if it is too big to handle) of something in your shop you find unique, or something that you think our other members might not have in their shop. Then we can have a round the table discussion on each item and it may spark ideas and a lot of conversation. We all can learn from each other!
