St. James Woodworkers is a group of hobbyist and professional woodworkers from the community of St. James, North Carolina, in the southeastern corner of the state where the Cape Fear River meets the Atlantic. Our group of people with diverse woodworking interests, ranging from wood arts to turning, from furniture making to carving, meet monthly to share knowledge and craftsmanship skills that serve the many facets of woodworking. We welcome anyone with an interest to join us regardless of skill level. Members will share their ideas and expertise in shop setup, project methods, tools, and more.
We generally meet the second Tuesday of the month in the afternoon, allowing for an after-meeting social gathering if desired. Please refer to this website, StJamesWoodworkers.org, for specific meeting locations and times as we frequently meet at the workshop of members or venture out on a field trip.
Due to Covid, we are not accepting dues payments. Drop us a note and we’ll include you in communications and collect your money when activities can begin again. We’d love to have you as part of our group, but as a largely social group (at a time we can’t be social) everything is difficult right now. Send a note of your interest to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please complete the following form. Our goal is to include areas of woodworking interest along with your contact information in a protected online directory (visible only to current members) to help form connections for tool and material sharing, project help, etc. Registration Form (PDF)
Dues Dues are $25 individual, $40 family, which covers the calendar year ($15 after July 1).
