Guilds can join!

Local woodworking clubs and guilds have been a great resource for woodworkers. Since most of us work in the seclusion of our own shops, it's great to get together every so often to share tips, swap tools and tell tall woodworking tales. The only problem? You typically just have the same members showing up time after time. That's great for building camaraderie, but not so good for getting new viewpoints or sharing what your club is doing as a group.

That's why the Modern Woodworkers Association want to know about you! If you are a member of a local woodworking club or guild, simply click the Join MWA tab. Once you do that, it's a simple matter of letting us know what you are up to! Send us your website address so we can list your group among our membership. If your group has a newsletter, shoot us the link, and we'll let folks know what's happening in your guild or club.

As we gather additional guilds and members to the Modern Woodworkers Association, we can go to woodworking stores, tool manufacturers and others as a large group to see what kinds of deals we can negotiate for members.

Another advantage is that you will have a built-in network of woodworkers around the country - and internationally. So, if your travels take you away for business or fun, you can get the woodworking lay of the land before you travel.

How much does it cost to have your guild or club join the Modern Woodworkers Association?  It's absolutely free.

So, why wait?  Resolve to become a more connected woodworker in the New Year!


  1. Excellent idea !

    1. We're looking forward to see it develop too, Eric. Here's hoping for a new year filled with woodworking community growth.
