I'm in Bend.  You might be able to connect with others through:
Guild of Oregon Woodworkers which offers monthly meetings, classes, etc.
Gary Rogowski's School which focuses more on hand tools but also sponsors various events
Woodcrafters Store which seems to be one of the better stores in the area and is sponsoring one of Gary Katz's upcoming roadshows.

I hope some of this helps.  Welcome to the northwest and Portlandia!

Kalama, 32mi north.  I am sure you have found Woodcrafters (N.E. 6th & Davis).  It's my favorite stop!

Hi,
Oregon City, and Woodcrafters is great, plenty of green receipts to go with the green tools.
