The Central Minnesota Woodworker's Association is a group of men and women from around the St. Cloud Minnesota area who share a common interest in the art and business of woodworking. We meet monthly in St. Cloud to share information, techniques and topics of interest in the area of woodworking. Learn more about membership or support.

April CMWA Meeting

Our activity for the April meeting will be on the "Art of Intarsia". Bill Sampson will present the technique of producing this art in wood. Bill has demonstrated great scroll saw skills and is willing to share his talent with our members. Thank you Bill!

CMWA February Meeting

To avoid a conflict with Ash Wednesday, we will have our February membership meeting on Wednesday, Feb. 25th 7:00 pm at the Paramount.

Our presentation will be, "Setting up and tuning your bandsaw" by the guy who wrote the book! Rollie Johnson.

December CMWA Meeting

The Holiday gathering will be in place of our December meeting. Many members have volunteered to bring treats from pulled pork to cakes, salads, cookies etc. If you wish, members are welcome to bring any of their favorite goodies to share. All spouses are welcome!

We will also have a Silent Auction. We are featuring, for sale, the two Shaker tables that were built for the Art Crawl. These would be great Christmas gifts!

We also welcome any other items to add to the auction. These may be old tools that are no longer used laying around the shop, to handmade holiday decorations etc. All proceeds are to benefit the CMWA. Please bring these items before 6:45 so that we can prepare the auction bills before the party.

We will have a very short meeting starting at 7:00 and move on to socializing for the rest of the evening.

See you at the party! December 17th 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm at the Paramount.
