What we're about

Meet other woodworkers who share your passion and learn from interacting with them.

The Washington Woodworker's Guild (WWG) is a nonprofit organization serving the DMV of the National Capital Region since 1980. All skill levels from the beginner to Master Craftsman are welcome.

Monthly WWG meetings are normally held on the third Tuesday of each month at the Goodwin House Bailey’s Crossroads (https://www.goodwinhouse.org/goodwin-house-baileys-crossroads/) Ballroom in the auditorium downstairs. Expect the meeting to run from 7:30 pm to around 9:30 pm. When arriving, please remember to stop by the reception desk. There is no meeting in August.

On occasion, The Guild holds meetings at NOVA Labs (http://www.nova-labs.org/) in Reston, VA. Please check the calendar or Facebook page for more information.

A typical meeting consists of a business portion to discuss the status of The Guild, upcoming events, group book & tool purchases, and other Guild activities. The business portion of the meeting is then followed by a “Special Program” highlighting some aspect of woodworking for skill enhancement and education.

Washington Woodworkers Guild Meeting

Goodwin House Auditorium

Since its founding in 1984 the Washington Woodworkers’ Guild’s (WWG) primary goal has been the education of its members in all aspects of woodworking and the promotion of interest in woodworking in the National Capitol Region. Efforts toward these goals have taken various forms: demonstrations at monthly meetings; technical seminars by nationally known experts; exhibitions of members’ work; maintenance of a woodworking videotape library; book and tool purchasing programs; and the publication of a quarterly newsletter The Wooden Word. We are a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to the preservation, enhancement and sharing of woodworking knowledge among ourselves and our community. Our Guild enjoys a diverse range of woodworking experience, and we always welcome new members. We offer beginners a friendly, safe environment to ask questions and learn; and for the more experienced woodworker, we offer opportunities to share your knowledge with fellow woodworkers and your community. We are interested in both machine and hand woodworking, and appreciate the beauty of grain. Meetings are held at Goodwin House at Bailey’s Crossroads.
