Our mission

The Northeastern Wisconsin Woodworkers Guild was formed in May, 1982 to further education and fellowship for area amateur and professional woodworkers, to advance the collective interest of woodworking, to promote good will, and to gain recognition through shows.

Membership in the Northeastern Wisconsin Woodworkers Guild is open to all amateur and professional woodworkers, male and female, for whom wood as a craft material is of special interest.
