Woodworkers of Whittier is a woodworking club that serves the greater Whittier area of Los Angeles County and North Orange County in California.
Through our club meetings and workshops, Woodworkers of Whittier (WoW) works to promote recreational woodworking. Club programs include, Members Helping Members, the club Lumberyard, and the monthly Pushstick newsletter. Programs such as these encourage sharing of skills, equipment, and materials between members.
Meetings include a woodworking related program, typically a demonstration or discussion, or perhaps a manufacturers representative. We cover a diverse range of topics, for example over the past year topics have included tablesaw techniques, finishing, shaker box making, joinery, scrollsawing, sharpening, turning, routers and more. There is usually something of interest to every woodworker.
Other popular items on the meeting agenda are the monthly raffle, show-and-tell where members show off their projects, and of course refreshments. Most importantly, we have fun!
Woodworkers of Whittier meets on the 2nd Thursday of every month at 6:30 PM at Adventure County Park in South Whittier (formerly Gunn Avenue Park). Adventure Park is located at 10130 S. Gunn Avenue. The park is between cross streets Reis and Light, just south of Mulberry Drive. We meet in the Senior Center. You do not have to be a member to attend meetings.
Woodworkers of Whittier was founded on the principle of service to our community and continues to place emphasis on that goal. For example, the annual WoW toy project benefits hundreds of children each year at Christmas time. WoW members made 1500 toy cars for 18 charities in 2014. Our workshop at Hathaway Ranch makes 10,000 toy wood building blocks a year. Other club projects include cabinet making for community organizations that share our community service ideals.
