On February 4th, 2008 the AAW granted chapter status to the Lone Star Woodturners Association in The Woodlands, Texas! I was honored to be elected President of the chapter for 2008 – 2009. We have a great set of dedicated officers and directors in place to lead our club for the coming year. In the last few weeks, we have been busy getting everything in place to get the chapter up and running, like getting a club logo, setting up a newsletter, starting to build our club website, discussing locations for meetings, demonstration topics and a hundred other little things…

We will have a club “Open House” meeting on March 29th in The Woodlands, quickly followed by three days of demonstrations at The Woodworking Shows (April 4 – 6th) in the Reliant Centre. If you live in the North Houston/Woodlands Texas area, or any of the surrounding areas in Montgomery, Liberty, Walker, North Waller or San Jacinto counties and would like more information about our club, please email me at: [email protected]

Our website is still being developed, but there is a short information page up with a link to our first newsletter and a membership application here:

Happy Birthday to the LSWA!

Woodworking store in Spring?

I remember a really pleasant store on I-45 in Spring, but when I tried to find them today I couldn’t – are they gone??

Yes, the store that used to be located in the Spring area just off I-45 is closed. It was called “Woodwright” IIRC. It closed some time ago, perhaps a year or two. However, Woodcraft moved from their location off 290 to the corner of I-45 and 1960 last year, so there is a woodworking store for north side residents. Take care and best wishes!
