The Woodworking Club is moving to new expanded facilities this winter season! CenClub is moving the Woodworking Club to a new location in the Clubhouse
It is the former game room that was located on the first floor of the clubhouse, adjacent to the billiards room. The game room has been moved to the second floor and is now open to residents.
The new woodshop will be much larger. As a result, we’ll be able to accommodate more members working on their projects simultaneously and also offer a variety of woodworking classes of interest to the Century Village community such as custom pen making, picture framing and matting, bowl making, wood burning, toys, cutting boards and small furniture. We’ll have experienced instructors leading these classes.
The shop will have a broad range of woodworking equipment including saws, drills, lathes, sanders as well as a large selection of hand tools. A new environmental system is being installed to keep the air free of dust and sawdust.
The club is grateful to CenClub for taking the initiative to relocate and enlarge the woodshop and provide a better facility for 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.
If you would like to join, please stop by at our current location on the 1st floor, around the corner from the billiard room and see one of our instructors. We have ongoing projects every Tuesday and Thursday 10:00 am to noon and 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm. Stop by and see what we are all about!
