Handtool SIG
The Hand Tool SIG meets, January through November, at 6:30, before the regular meeting at Bethany Lutheran in the lower conference room.
Anyone interested in the use of hand tools is welcome to join us for discussion of this fascinating area of woodworking.

Hope to see you in there!

Arnie Bandstra & Michael Fross - Co-Chairs
ShopSmith SIG
The ShopSmith SIG, which was started way back in 2008 by Dave Dockstader, is being disbanded because no one has stepped forward to chair the group. We are looking to see if there would be interest in starting a SIG for other woodworking pursuits. Either a Turning SIG or a CNC SIG has been suggested. If you would like to participate in either of those areas or have questions or suggestions, please let us know by sending an email to President@FVWWC.ORG or Webmaster@FVWWC.ORG

Scroll Saw SIG
The Scroll Saw SIG meets twice each quarter, in January, February, April, May, July, August, and October. We cover all aspects of scroll saw use, including fretwork, portraits, pictures, intarsia, segmentation, inlay, marquetry, compound scroll sawing, jig saw puzzles, baskets, bowls, boxes, puzzles and toys. Meetings include a scheduled topic and discussions of various scroll saw problems and solutions.

We meet 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm in the Vlahn Memorial Room/ #M111 of the Ministry Center next door to the church. Share your scroll saw experience with us and pick up some tips, techniques and even patterns along the way.
