CJWA February Highlights

The CJWA held their second meeting of the year on Wednesday, February 11th. Member turnout was strong, with approximately 62 active members attending the event. All club officers were present, and the club welcomed 1 guest.

President, Matt Kestenbaum, called the meeting to order at 7:15 PM. Regular introductory remarks were made, including information about the use of the club library and a reminder to the membership to please wear their name badges.

In the interest of time for the feature presentation, old business was postponed until the end of the meeting. Vice President, Marc Gaertner, then introduced the featured speaker for the evening, Designer & Craftsman Glen Guarino of Guarino Furniture Designs in Cedar Grove, NJ.

Glen spent the rest of the evening discussing the design process and construction details of his unique, sculptural designs. 

In addition to our regular monthly meeting, the CJWA attended The Woodworking Show in Somerset the weekend of February 20-22.  Members spent time at the booth talking to show attendees about the club, demonstrating various woodworking projects and techniques, and running seminars on various topics.  Thanks to all those members who pitched in over the weekend for making 2015 another successful show!
