Woodworking Fundamentals

The Guild’s Woodworking Fundamentals Group will return to live meetings on Saturday October 2nd in a new location. Meetings will be at Bob LaCivita’s shop at his property in Northwood.

Our first meeting will be dedicated to mitre joints, as they are as fundamental as a joint can be. In door and window construction, boxes, cabinets, picture frames, and all types of moldings. Bob will be happy to show how it’s done!

Bob’s new shop is smaller than the commercial space in Salmon Falls and will not accommodate as many attendees. There will be 12 spaces available for each meeting and it would make sense if all were filled by novice woodworkers. Many new members have joined the Guild in the last 2 years and we hope to see them at these meetings. Due to the Covid Pandemic full vaccination is required for all in the shop.

We look forward to seeing you at Bob’s shop. It is located at 27 Sherburne Hill Rd, Northwood NH 03261. All meetings run from 9am til noon. There will be 5 meetings this season, the first Saturday of Oct and Dec 2021, and the first Saturday of Feb, April, and June 2022.

Thanks, and Happy Woodworking.

Be Aware of Scammers
Answering These Ads!

Please be aware that there is a scammer answering these ads. Be careful!!!!

I recommend that you only take CASH or checks from people you know. Very little of the stuff that is advertised is so rare or such a great deal that someone would hire an “agent” to ship it.




If you are selling something online, as a business or through classifieds ads, you may be targeted by an overpayment scam.

The scammer will contact you, make you an offer—often quite generous—then make payment through credit card or cheque. They will be for an amount that is greater than the agreed price.

The scammer will contact you with an apology for the overpayment, offering a fake excuse. The scammer might tell you that the extra money was included to cover agent’s fees or extra shipping costs. Or they may just say they simply made a mistake when writing the cheque.

The scammer will then ask you to refund the excess amount or they will ask for you to forward the amount through to a third party. They will ask for this to through an online banking transfer, pre-loaded money card, or a wire transfer such as Western Union. You then discover that their cheque has bounced or the credit card had been a stolen or fake card.

A newer variation on this scam involves online sales, usually through classified sites, where the scammer pretends to have made a payment for a larger than agreed amount through services such as PayPal by sending a fake receipt of payment. The scammer will claim that the money is being held until you forward on the extra money.

If you send any money, you will not get it back. If you have already sent the ‘sold’ item you will lose this as well. At the very least, the scammer will have wasted your time and prevented you from accepting any legitimate offers on your sale.

I just wanted other Sellers to be careful as I see some valuable machines for sale here.
