With the new year coming, input from the membership is really needed in several areas: we need volunteers to serve on the Board of Directors, to help with meeting setups, and to assist with the Library and website.  Most importantly, we need your ideas and participation in meeting programs -- giving a presentation to your fellow woodworkers is always appreciated!

Please be sure to bring a folding chair for seating at our meetings.  If you`ve borrowed a book or video from our Library, please remember to return it.

For more information about WNCWA, please use the Contact Us tab on the menu.

Membership in the Western North Carolina Woodworkers Association is open to anyone with a desire to learn and share ideas about woodworking with other members.

Some of the benefits in becoming a member include:

  • Monthly meetings with live demonstrations. Newcomers are welcome to attend meetings.
  • Use of the club`s extensive lending library of woodworking books, videos and magazines. If you view only one video, your savings over the purchase price will more than cover the cost of your membership fee.
  • Access to the members only section of the WNCWA`s web site.
  • Networking with other woodworkers you will learn more from regularly brushing elbows with other members than by any other means. There are hundreds of years of woodworking experience that you can take advantage of.

Please join us by clicking the Membership Application button below and completing your membership information. Once we receive your dues, we will activate the listing.

Our annual dues are $25 (includes both member and family).
