Who are Guild members?

Anyone interested in woodworking. Students to retirees, weekend putterers to professionals, beginners to award winning artists.

What kind of things do we do?

Our work can be simple or complex, strictly functional or purely aesthetic, but most often a mixture of these. We make things for personal use, as gifts, and for sale.

Why?

To meet a need, to learn a skill, as a job. But often, simply for the joy of making something with our hands.

Where?

We do our woodworking in a huge variety of settings: from tiny corners of the family basement or garage, to classrooms, to large production shops. Our tools vary from simple hand tools, to power tools, restored antique to modern tools, and even computer assisted tools.

Why the Guild?

For monthly programs/presentations on a variety of woodworking topics. To share the fun, the challenges with members. To get new ideas, or advice on problems. And to share our accomplishments, O.K., to brag a little.

When?

Monthly meetings on the campus of the University of Wisconsin Green Bay. Click Meetings and Events for more details.
