Welcome to Rochester Woodworkers Society!
We host many events to learn, share and connect; here's a few for 2022/23:
September 24 - Sharpening Bee
This is free and open to non-members but registration is required (click on Sharpening Bee to the right). Participants can bring woodworking tools that need sharpening and learn how. Members are asked to bring their favored sharpening method to show others. Help us get the word out!

December - Instagram
Local social media woodworking legend and new member Logan Newman, will be hosting a workshop about Instagram. He is a talented woodworker and has thousands of Instagram followers, so he knows how. This workshop will be open to members only.
