Stone’s Sticks began January 2019 cutting up the scraps from a local business to sell for firewood as a job that could pay for Stone’s driver’s license. Crafters began coming and buying the wood for their projects. Soon this side job advanced into the sale of crafting wood. Stone Ducimetiere (doo-sem-tee-air) now age 16 partners with his Mom and sometimes his Dad processing over 2000 pounds of hardwood that would usually go to the dump. Stone and Missy will be bringing a slide show to demonstrate the steps they took to solve problems that came about while decreasing waste and increasing opportunity in the small town of Burrton, KS
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.
If you would like to become a member please contact any of our officers and they would be happy to help you get acquainted with other members and to help you with your membership. Membership Dues are collected by the Calendar Year and are $30.00 or $15.00 if you join after June.
