About Us

The KCWG is a membership of many woodworkers of various skills and interests.  We have fine furniture makers, woodturners, home builders and more.

The Kansas City Woodworkers' Guild was developed with you in mind.  Let us tell you a little about our past.

One evening in November 1984, 20 people met, after responding to an Ad by one of our Charter Members.  He had put an Ad in the "Dispatch" (a local paper) asking if anyone wanted to start a Woodworking Guild.

That night, the Kansas City Woodworkers' Guild had officially been formed!

Today, we reach out in many ways to teach young woodworkers, fellowship with our peers and sustain our community.  If this interests you, please consider becoming a member today!

We operate as a non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement of Woodworking in Kansas City. We promote the skill and craft of woodworking and provide education, information, fellowship, and organization to those interested in working with wood. The Guild also sponsors community outreach programs and similar activities.

Our goals are accomplished through clinics, classes, workshops, programs, demonstrations, and networking with other guild members and the community.

We offer:

  • Woodworking Equipment & Open Shop
  • Hands-on Workshops
  • Purchase discounts

The Kansas City Woodworkers’ Guild is a great source of information for every level of woodworker from amateur to professional. At monthly meetings, members can improve woodworking techniques and skills through hands on demonstrations, guest speakers and discussions.

The Guild supports its own Woodworking Shop, publishes a monthly newsletter with articles of interest, reports of events, notes, & comments, and sends out for sale/wanted ads and sponsors’ specials by E-mail. Many of our sponsors give members special prices and/or discounts on purchases of select tools and materials.

We invite you to attend one of our monthly meetings as our guest to learn first hand what our Guild is all about.
