Future General Meeting Presentations:

** Guests are always welcome! **

General Meetings are the second Tuesday of the month, September through May, at the Woodsmith Store in Clive, IA (Get Map).

We meet in the back room of the store, please ask at the front desk if you need help finding us. Doors open at 6pm for socializing.

Meetings start at 7:00 pm, unless otherwise posted below, and generally are over about 9:00 pm.

Because the Woodsmith Store closes at 7pm, you may not be able to get in if you arrive after 7pm. Come early and meet your fellow woodworkers!

Meetings consist of:

  • An update on Club events and activities
  • Woodworking Q&A
  • Time to get to know other members
  • An educational presentation
  • Member project show and tell
  • Plus, great cookies and coffee!
