Meetings Update!


RWS Typically holds eight meetings a year between September and May. We meet on the Rochester Institute of Technology campus (details here). The general meeting begins at 7:45 PM and typically involves a series of announcements, updates and a raffle. A presentation by our visiting national speaker begins at 8:00 PM and usually lasts about an hour.


Non-members are welcome to attend monthly meetings free of charge.


The first one will be Sept 17.  We expect the meeting (but not the pre-meeting displays) to be also on Zoom.

We are a group in Upstate NY dedicated to the enjoyment of woodworking. Membership includes lectures and workshops by renowned woodworking personalities and local professionals as well as free access to our extensive lending library of books and videos.


RWS welcomes everyone interested in the craft whether professional or hobbyist. Join the company of hundreds of enthusiasts – carvers, turners, furniture makers, boat builders, and other skilled craftspeople and take your woodworking skills to a new level.

Monthly Show & Tell sessions


Show & Tell sessions are online meetings during which RWS members can share pictures of their projects and tell us a bit about design and construction. This is a great complement to the in-person pre-meeting displays. Now you can show us your projects that are too big or too precious to bring to a meeting. Sign up today!


All RWS members will receive an email with a link to join each Zoom session. Socializing begins at 6:30PM and the Show & Tell speakers start at 7PM. Any questions can be directed to:
