Who We Are
The Tidewater Woodworkers Guild operates on a calendar year basis and the members meet every fourth Monday each month except December when we usually have a Christmas Party. Each meeting we have a scheduled program and topic that will be presented based on the interests of the members. January is usually our annual safety meeting in which we present and discuss safety topics. We cover electrical safety in general as well as table saw and band saw safety just to mention a few. We are a seasoned woodworking group having been in existence since 1980. Currently there are about 70 members in good standing. We welcome all skill levels and new members can find a true mentor in practically every facet of woodworking within the Guild.
Membership Dues for the Tidewater Woodworkers Guild are only $20 per calendar year. The dues pay for the website development and hosting, and to subsidize guild activities during the year. With membership also comes discounts at several local woodworking-related establishments. The 10% discount at Woodcraft on meeting nights alone will more than recover your annual membership dues.
The application for membership with the Tidewater Woodworkers Guild can be filled out either electronically or on printed and brought to one of our monthly meetings with your dues. Alternatively, completed forms can be mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will contact prospective members to arrange payment. Once we have an application and dues, we will issue a membership card at the following month's meeting of the Guild.
