During the Covid-19 pandemic we have redesigned our Special Interest Group meetings and the General Meetings. We are currently holding online Zoom meetings.
We are in limited operations. The 
Special Interest Group Leaders will notify members of workshops. Pay attention to email and phone notifications. 

No mask, no entry.

Our art partner, The Sierra Art Gallery, is holding an art sale on March 20th in the Pioneer Plaza. John H. is leading this for us. Please contact John labanimalconsultants@charter.net or 775-636-5674 if you have art you would like to sell. You will need to participate in this if you want to sell/show your art. Set up is 11A.M.-1 P.M. The show is from 1-5 P.M. We will be talking about the club and trying to get new members as well. Vaccinated members are most appreciated to participate!! Of course, masks will be required for everyone. We will only see your smile through your eyes. 

In February of 2021, we held a garage sale which was an amazing gift to those just starting out in woodworking. Keep looking at this page for more, because, there will be more excellent tools for sale at a fraction of retail prices.

In January of 2021, we went and scooped snow from one of our long time member and trainer’s driveway. We had fun. He and his wife were surprised. His daughter (who doesn’t live in Reno) was ecstatic! We have plenty of pictures, but well, some things don’t show up on the webpage. 

In December of 2020, we gave away 1,400 toys that we distributed to 13 non-profit organizations who work in our community with families and children in need. We do this every year. Most of the toys were made at home this year by dedicated volunteers.

Our club membership is comprised of women and men doing woodworking. Hand tools, power tools, and digital tools all are in our tool belts. We create toys, furniture, turning, carving…. The shop has most tools used in woodworking, power and manual – saws, lathes, sanders, planers, scroll saws and we have a 60 watt CO2 CMC laser. Coming online this spring (2021) is a CMC tool (a router on steroids).  

Normally, we have classes and group projects helping one another learn and promote the art and enjoyment of this craft. During this time, we will hold individual classes, when asked. Individual and family membership available.

Below is a segment on what we are doing, which was shown on our local CBS affiliate, in early December 2020. 

We currently use Zoom for our meetings. 

The shop is open, by appointment. 

We have six  – Special Interest Groups (SIGs): Toys, Lathe, Scroll Saw, Tools and Techniques, Carving, and Digital Workshop. Members attend and participate in the groups of their interest. We are dedicated to teaching the skills of woodworking, by classes, projects, and demonstrations, with safety and participation.

Some program/project are supported, in part, by the Nevada Arts Council, a state agency, which receives support from the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
