Thank you for visiting our website


The primary focus of most members, both professional and amateur, is furniture design and construction. The Granite State Woodturners, a subgroup of the Guild, cover both bowl and spindle turning. We also have members who restore old houses and antique furniture, build kitchen cabinets, create small wooden gifts, miniature doll house furniture, and produce wooden boats and canoes. Some members carve ornamentation on panels and doors while others are wood sculptors.

If you are serious about woodworking, this is the place to be. Our wide range of programs includes member run groups focusing on making stringed instruments (Luthiers), pre-industrial age furniture (Period Furniture), an instructional group for beginners (BIG), and turning at the lathe (Granite State Woodturners). Each and every year there are over 30 events and opportunities for our members to improve their skills and learn from each other.

We are proud of what we offer each other, and prouder still that our success has seen us grow from 15 isolated professionals meeting to explore starting an organization, to a vibrant organization with over 500 members in New Hampshire and the adjoining states. Thank you again for stopping by and if you have an interest in any form of woodworking you are our kind of person. Please feel free to join us.
