Who We Are
The Guild of Oregon Woodworkers is a non-profit, diverse corporation with the following purposes:
The Guild of Oregon Woodworkers had a simple beginning. In 1978 a small group of professional woodworkers in the Portland, Oregon area began meeting in an effort to find a better way to market and sell their products. The Guild was formally born.
The Guild Evolves Over Time
Not surprisingly, the Guild changed over time. The mission of the Guild has changed significantly with the introduction of non-professional woodworkers and a non-profit focus on the community. In the last 7 years, the membership has grown to over 1,100 members and a number of new programs have been started or expanded including:
The Guild has no employees, is managed totally by volunteers. With this volunteer workforce, it has become one of the premier woodworking Guilds in the country. We are active, diverse, friendly, and dedicated to craftsmanship in the use of one of nature’s most precious gifts—wood.
