Time to Hit the Bench!

The 2014 Northern Woods Show will be held on April 24-27, 2014. Our first year at Eden Prairie Center was a great success and we are happy to announce that we will be there again this year. The Northern Woods Exhibition is our premier event each year. Whether you exhibit a piece, help with set up, "man the booth", or just visit and enjoy the camaraderie, participation in the Northern Woods show is the most fun you can have before summer arrives. I know you don't want to miss out and it is not too late to prepare your piece for this year's show.

Registration is now closed.

Contact Charlie Kocourek at if you have any questions.

About Us

The Minnesota Woodworkers Guild is a group of professional and amateur woodworkers bound together by three goals:

to advocate high standards in our craft
to meet new friends and discuss woodworking
to educate ourselves and the public about woodworking

The Guild hosts monthly educational meetings, produces a bi-monthly newsletter, and sponsors the annual “Northern Woods” show, an exhibition of fine woodworking. We welcome membership by all woodworkers, regardless of what they build, their level of skill, style of work, or their profession.

Our goal is to encourage the highest standards in woodworking, while allowing each of our members to grow at their own pace, from whatever level of skill and accomplishment they begin with.

Simply put, we want each of our members to become the best woodworker they are capable of, and to enjoy telling their Guild friends about it along the way.
