Topic tags/keywords: woodworking club massachusetts cape cod

Hello All,

I’m interested in starting a woodworking club here in Southeastern Mass. The folks at in Falmouth have offered to host meetings. Anyone interested? I’m thinking one meeting a month to start. I know there are lots of talented woodworkers in the area. We should be able to get something going.

I would like to join you Bob, however, it would be too far for me to travel from “metro-west.”

Bob, did you find a club on or near the Cape? I’m in Harwich.

Bob – I just came across this old post.

Do you have any current info about wood working clubs near S.E. Mass. ? Since retiring, 2 yrs ago, I probably make 1 project/gift every other month or so. (bookshelf, 6bd pine chest, coffee tbl, etc.)

I am one town away from where you were in Carver.

Hi guys…Sorry. I hadn’t been on LJ in a long time but was lurking and saw this. I used to be here a lot then life changed and I got away from woodworking for awhile. I’ve been making sawdust a lot more again lately though and figured it was a good time to get back on.

I moved from Carver to Plymouth a year ago to be closer to the water but I also got a two car garage out of it that my wife is happy to let me have as a shop. Projects over the last year or so….I’ve built a few things for the house, baker’s cart/island, bathroom vanity….carved a tiki for a charity auction, building/carving a fairy house for my soon to be born 2nd granddaughter….a few other carving projects and misc stuff. I have a bunch of outdoor woodworking projects on my list. Hardscaping for the new place, building a screenhouse and a backyard kitchen area, some benches and such.

I haven’t actively sought out clubs since posting this and I’m not sure how much skill I have to share but it could be fun to get together occasionally and compare notes technique.

Hi Bob -

I have also been away from LJ’s for a while. Right now I am getting my place ready for sale in fall. (Lots of accumulated stuff and fix up to redo after 40+ years.) Am looking forward to an in-law apt with my older son & his family in Sagamore Beach or Sandwich area. – We both want a new shop. – Anyway, I gave away my old Craftsman radial arm saw. I’ll sell my 6 in. AMT jointer, my low end JET 10 in. aluminum table saw and and a number of pieces of project wood for low cost to someone who can use them rather than haul them off to a storage facility. I have a full-sized F150, so I can help with transport. – just need more muscle than my older two arms can do by themselves -

Please keep me in loop about woodworking group. thanks -

Hmmm….I might actually be interested in both. Looking to upgrade my table saw from the dewalt contractor that I have now (fence is terrible) and I need a jointer and i’m always interested in wood….:).

Hi again Bob –
I am rushing to paint & clean up my house in time for an open house in 4 days. Still have my 6 inch AMT jointer. So if you are interested it is free. It is mounted on a wheeled base, works well – minus a blade chip -. The on/off switch is busted so I plug the motor directly into an extension cord instead of plugging it into the switch.

Several folks I sold stuff to were interested but did not have room to set up a full sized jointer. If I can’t find a useful home for it, I’ll simply put a free sign on it near the road. It would be too bad to see it picked up by a metal scrapper.
So, I thought I’d give you first shot before I do that.

thanks – Barry
