Wood Toxicity and Identification

At the April meeting the subject of wood toxicity came up. There is a good list of woods and their toxicity in the publication, “ A Guide to Useful Woods of the World” published by the Forest Products Society and The International Wood Collectors Society. But, that list is basically reproduced at this link;

The website, www.wood-database.com is also a very good site to help identify many different woods that we might use.

New Guild Website

LSWG_logoWelcome to the Lee’s Summit’s Woodworking Guild’s new website.   Our mission statement is “The Lee’s Summit Woodworkers’ Guild will strive to promote the exchange of woodworking information and further the craft.” and we hope the new website will do exactly that.  Some of the main feature include member profiles, a photo gallery, article, videos and calendar.  We have added a sample of the content that we have and plan on adding much more in the coming months. 

We have have 4 more  years of show and tell pictures from past meetings that we will be adding. We hope to add search capability to be able to search the thousands of photos. We also have hours and hours of videos of past presentations that need to be edited and put on the new site.

Let us know what you think and be sure to check back soon, we will be adding more content very soon.
