About the Guild of NH Woodworkers
If you are serious about woodworking, this is the place to be. Our wide range of programs includes member run groups focusing on making stringed instruments (Luthiers), pre-industrial age furniture (Period Furniture), an instructional group for beginners (BIG), and turning at the lathe (Granite State Woodturners). Each and every year there are over 30 events and opportunities for our members to improve their skills and learn from each other.
Our primary mission as an organization is education. We are an IRS recognized 501(c)3 non-profit and we meet our obligations to the public by running lectures, symposia and demonstrations which are open to everyone.
The primary focus of most members, both professional and amateur, is furniture design and construction. The Granite State Woodturners, a subgroup of the Guild, cover both bowl and spindle turning. We also have members who restore old houses and antique furniture, build kitchen cabinets, create small wooden gifts, miniature doll house furniture, and produce wooden boats and canoes. Some members carve ornamentation on panels and doors while others are wood sculptors.
