Next Meeting Tuesday January 24th at 7pm Downtown Senior Center, 200 S. Walnut, Wichita Kansas
This month’s program will be presented by Patrick Haire. He will share with us the process of restoring and using vintage line shaft driven woodworking machines from the late 1800’s. He will take us on his journey of restoring the vintage machines from the Iola Planing Mill to his current shop in Humboldt Kansas. We will also get to see photos of some of the historical preservation work he has done in Colorado and an 1860’s carriage shop he is currently restoring.
The Sunflower Woodworker's Guild was established in Wichita in 1991. The purpose of the Guild is to build woodworking skills through the sharing of knowledge, and the promotion of our local woodworking community. We welcome all skill levels from beginners to professionals.
Meetings are on the 4th Tuesday of each month at the Downtown Senior Center located at 200 South Walnut. The social period begins at 6:30 p.m. where members exchange ideas and discuss new tools. The general meeting begins at 7:00 p.m. with business followed by a program featuring a presentation of a woodworking skill or topic by one of our members, or an invited guest speaker.
If you are not familiar with our Guild, we encourage you to come visit with us at one of our monthly meetings. We all come from a variety of backgrounds, but we all love working with wood. So, come on down and visit.
