All woodworkers, from beginners to professionals, are invited to the Guild of Maine Woodworkers where woodworkers can meet and share their knowledge and skills with each other. Monthly meetings include demonstrations, tool discussions, and guest speakers, as well as the popular “show and tell” where members show off their woodworking projects. Meetings rotate around members’ shops. Maybe you'll get some ideas for your own shop. If you need help on a project, the Guild is the place to be. See the latest Dovetale issue for the location of the next meeting or contact us.
