Wood Shop

If you've never been inside the Wood Shop,

here's what the excitement is all about and what you're missing.

  • Hours:

    • Normal (Winter Seasons) - Woodshop is open for use (as long as a 'monitor' is available) Monday thru Friday from 9:00 am to noon AND 1 to 4 pm.

    • Summer 2019 - The woodshop slows down in the summer. In spite of the summer heat, the woodshop Monitors are making an extra effort to keep the woodshop available. For the month of June the shop will be open:

      • Tuesdays 9:00 until Noon

      • Tuesdays 1:00 until 3:00

      • Thursdays 9:00 until Noon

      • Fridays 9:00 until Noon
         

      • In fairness to the Monitors, if there is little activity, they may close early, so if you wait until 5 minutes before closing time you may be disappointed. If you have a crisis need, you can contact any Monitor to find a time other than the above. Enjoy the summer.    Pat Harvey
         

  • Meets:  Business meetings are held 2nd and 4th Fridays of every month @ 1 pm at the Wood Shop during Winter Seasons.
     

  • Details:

    • No fee (most HOAs, RV resorts charge a fee).

    • Shop is open to members year around.

    • Shop is a 40' by 60' building.

    • Woodworking building holds the latest and some of the best woodworking tools around. The lathes are used often.

    • Members can work with power equipment after attending a Safety and Information class.

    • Every 1st Wed of the month is shop cleanup @ 8 am.

The woodshop will be open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday mornings from 9:00 AM this month. The shop may close before noon depending on how much activity there is, so don't wait until to close to noon if you need something.

If you have any comments on the scruffy, junky sign on the Woodshop, please let me know. Ignoring the ink-jet printer lettering, it is a "sample" of what a permanent sign might look like (size, color and wording). Thanks Pat Harvey

It's Summer time and like everything else in Sunshine, the woodshop slows down in the summer. In spite of the summer heat, the woodshop Monitors are making an extra effort to keep the woodshop available. For the month of June the shop will be open:

  • Tuesdays 9:00 until Noon

  • Tuesdays 1:00 until 3:00

  • Thursdays 9:00 until Noon

  • Fridays 9:00 until Noon 

 

In fairness to the Monitors, if there is little activity, they may close early, so if you wait until 5 minutes before closing time you may be disappointed.

If you have a crisis need, you can contact any Monitor to find a time other than the above.

 

Enjoy the summer

Woodworkers’ News

It’s nice to welcome back the late-comers who finally found their way to the Rio Grande Valley. Weather here certainly is better than it is in the northern states. And, business sure has picked up at the Woodshop. It is also amazing how supportive the people living in our development are of the woodworkers’ group.

 

The Woodworkers’ Spaghetti Dinner on Tuesday, January 29, is going to be a SOLD OUT event once again. Our thanks to everyone who purchased tickets. The woodworkers look forward to serving you dinner on Tuesday. 

 

The woodworkers have held orientation classes for new woodworkers, refresher classes for monitors at the woodshop, and turning classes for people who want to make their own bowls, vases, and anything else that can be made on a lathe. 

The woodworkers have two meetings a month on the second and fourth Friday at 1:00 p.m. at the woodshop. February’s meetings will be held on the 8th and 22nd. Feel free to join us to meet a lot of great guys and gals, now that more women are getting involved. If you have visitors at your house, feel free to bring them to see woodshop because we believe SEPO has one of the best woodshops in the Rio Grande Valley!

 

Again, thanks to everyone for ensuring that the Woodworkers’ Spaghetti Dinner will be another great success.

 

Suzie Sawyer, President
