A newly enlarged and well-equipped woodshop is now open in the Clubhouse for use by the CVE community. The new woodshop, at over 1000 sq ft,, is much larger than the old one, and includes all the tools and equipment needed to support basic woodworking activity and projects. The larger room will allow many more members to use the room at any one time, a restriction we had with the former smaller shop.
The club is offering a variety of woodworking classes for the winter session including custom pen making using wood and acrylics, bowl turning, and making jewelry boxes.
Residents may use the woodshop by signing up for a class or by joining the woodworking club. We welcome new members, whether you’re an experienced woodworker or a novice, wanting to learn new skills. We also welcome contributions of tools and materials. The annual membership fee is $55.
We are grateful to CenClub, and Executive Director, Mike Burdman, as well and the Board of Directors for leading the effort to make this newly expanded shop and we owe a special thanks to Jerry Mall for building all the beautiful and functional workbenches and tables
for the new woodshop.
