The Sun City WoodShop is a modern well equipped facility with equipment and accessories for almost any project. We maintain an inventory of Poplar, Maple, Walnut, Oak, and Cherry for purchase at cost. In addition we have glue, clamps , dowels, biscuits, screws, and pneumatic nailers to pull it all together. A library of plans and ideas plus internet access round the shop out. Residents who become members are free to use our air-conditioned, filtered-air, dust-free wood shop any time during hours of operation.
We are very proud of our safety record and make sure that woodworkers of any level can safely use our equipment. New members are asked to attend an Orientation and Safety Training class, followed by a one on one training mentorship program. In addition there are enhanced training classes, safety monitor classes and members who gladly lend a hand. Thus, we have found that woodworkers who start at any level are capable of making their projects safely.
New members must pay the annual dues & a one time training fee at the CA Office then visit the wood shop with the receipt to sign up for any available O&S class.
We have a very active Special Interest Group (SIG) of wood carvers in addition to members who make wooden models and take advantage of our three lathes for turning projects.
We have many volunteer opportunities and social events which help make us a great club where you can follow your passion for woodworking while also making great friends.
We support community projects such as :
• Toys for Tots
• Camp Discovery
• Craft Sales
• Furniture Repair
• Special Crafts
The money we make helps fund our charitable and social activities.
