The Western Pennsylvania Woodworkers club is dedicated to the purpose of education, safety, and techniques in all areas of woodworking. Our membership includes about 100 amateurs and professionals from all areas of the woodworking crafts.

Our mission is to educate, inform, and share woodworking skills, experiences, and ideas in an enjoyable environment.

Monthly meetings are held generally on the second Saturday of each month where in addition to the main program, we exchange woodworking information, techniques, tips, designs, and ideas. The main program is a formal demonstration or presentation, usually by a member of the group. We suspend regular meetings for the summer months but sometimes hold a special meeting or field trip over the summer.

Western Pennsylvania Woodworkers is a non-profit organization founded in 1980. New members and visitors are always welcome at our meetings. We invite you to join us to learn about woodworking, improve your skills and help us to improve ours.
