Central Indiana Woodworkers, Inc
We were founded in 1948 as the Home
Craftsmen Forum. We started with the
sole objective to provide members with presentation of educational
programs and demonstration of machines, tools and processes adaptable
for use in the home workshop.
Over the years the we have grown and become more focused on Woodworking. We occasionally make visits to companies in the area involved in the woodworking industry.
We have added the making of wooden toys that are distributed to disadvantaged
children as our formal charitable service to the community. Each year we make over 9,000 toys and 1500 craft kits. These are distributed through over 20 social service organizations in time for Christmas.
The club has 5 shop hosts who open their shops to other members to gather and work on toys together. We receive support from a number of companies in the form of donations of wood, cash donations, discounts for club members and other miscellaneous supplies.
Please contact us if you would like to join the club, or just show up at a meeting!!
