February CMWA Meeting

Wednesday February 19th, 2020 at 7:00 PM
Paramount Tech Center, Waite Park

This month’s meeting will be held February 19th at 7pm. Michael Roske will be joining us as a guest speaker from the St. Johns Abbey Woodshop. Michael will be giving us a presentation on sustainable woodworking. At the Abbey Woodshop all of the oak they use is locally sourced with much of it coming from their 1,205 acres of oak and northern hardwood trees. Thinking about the next generations of woodworkers, the Abbey has worked to develop processes to replenish the trees that they harvest and protect the new trees. This will be a great opportunity to gain a better insight of how the Abbey plans to keep their woodshop sustainable for many years to come.
