The Kansas City Woodworkers’ Guild undertakes numerous projects each year, some as fundraisers and some for community service. This page is a placeholder for current projects announced at the meetings, in the newsletter or through the Guild’s email program. Projects remain on this page until they are completed in order that members may easily find a link to the Sign-Up site and join their friends working on behalf of the Guild and the community.

Guild Shares

Guild Members who volunteer their services to teach classes or to work on the Guild’s various fund-raising projects qualify for Guild Shares.  For every hour of instruction or project work, they get 2 Guild Shares worth $1 each.  Guild Shares can be redeemed to pay for classes, annual dues, or Guild products/apparel.


More Field Turf Boxes

The milling of material is now finished for the most recent order of 100 Turf Boxes and now we need four (4) volunteers for each of the following sessions;

Tuesday, June 27,  9:00 AM – 12:00 PM
Tuesday, June 27,  1:00 PM – 4:00 PM
Wednesday, June 28,  9:00 AM – 12:00 PM
Wednesday, June 28,  1:00 PM – 4:00 PM

The tasks to be completed are silk screening the material, assembling and gluing the boxes, cutting off the lid, spot sanding the box and attaching the catches.  These tasks, with exception of cutting the lid, do not require the volunteer to have a green card.

In-House Guild Projects

From time to time Guild members contribute their skills to make the Guild Shop more comfortable, efficient, or appealing.  In May of 2016, Guild members framed out the welcome counter in oiled walnut.
