Location and Directions

We meet at the Old Brick Reformed Church, 490 Route 520, Marlboro, NJ, in the Church Parish Hall, located behind the church itself. The church is located on Route 520 approximately one-quarter of a mile east from the Route 520 & Route 79 intersection. New members and guests are always welcome!

From the Garden State Parkway, exit at #109 and proceed West on Route 520/Newman Springs Road into Marlboro (approximately 6 miles). The large Old Brick Church will be on your right, just past the Marlboro Psychiatric Hospital (Marlboro Center for Human Development).

From Route 18, take the exit for Route 79 North. Proceed North on Route 79 for approximately 2 miles to the Route 520 / Newman Springs Road intersection (there is a WaWa and an Amoco gas station on the corner). Make a right hand turn at the light onto Route 520 East and go 1/4 mile; the church is on the left.

June 2009 Meeting: 8 board feet of wood contest, raised panel doors

The 8 Board Feet of Wood competition was judged this evening with about 12 entries, which represented the largest number of entries to our challenge thus far.  First place was awarded to Steve Altman with a very detailed and exacting jewelry case made of common pine, which is a species very out of character for Mr. Altman, yet the workmanship was excellent and his finish was that of very old wood.  Steve received a $50.00 gift certificate that was generously donated by Monteath Lumber for our contest. Kudos to Steve! 



Bob Masterson demonstrated an easy method of making raised panel doors. He made a cherry door for a vanity using only 3 cutters and a router table. The purpose was to show that if Bob can do it, anybody can do it (his words) and he hopes some were inspired to try. He also says that the vanity has yet to be completed.

The passing of Sam Maloof and his work and kindness was mentioned.
