Welcome to MWA

The mission of the MAINE WOODWORKERS ASSOCIATION is to share woodworking knowledge and techniques; educate through demos, courses, and shop visits; and create a social network for area woodworkers.

Our association is made up of enthusiast and professional woodworkers who make furniture, home fixtures, architectural forms, turnings, carvings, boxes, bookmarks, musical instruments, and boats.

Members meet monthly year round, visiting different shops from Portland to Rockport, or attending various courses. The interests of hosts are as broad as the interests of members. One month the subject of a meeting might be traditional furniture making techniques; the next month application of computers to manufacture and design.
