Volunteer Opportunities

For general volunteering questions, see below or contact the volunteer team.


The Guild is an all volunteer organization. Everyone's help is needed to keep things running! There are roles for you if you have skills and experience to share.  Even if you are a beginner woodworker there are many ways to get involved.  Some roles require lots of time but other roles take minimal time.  The most important thing is to GET INVOLVED.   You will always be welcomed into the Guild Volunteer Community! 

Immediate Opening - Class Registrar (Education)

Looking for a volunteer to take over duties of registrar for Guild classes.  Manage class registrations, cancellations, and waitlist.  Corresponds with instructors and class coordinators. Manages member prerequisites and class related accounts.  The Registrar often receives requests for information from new members and internet searchers.  Work can be done from home and monthly attendance at Education Leadership meeting can be done in person or by Zoom.  Another member is willing to job share if you're interested in that.

Project Build: Register and attend free Wednesday sessions and join woodworkers of all skill levels as we build projects to be used at the Guild, sold to benefit the Guild, or given to a good cause. Projects are proposed and led by Project Build members, so there are many ways to help out. Click here or email Project Build.

Toy BuildDo you like to make toys or want to improve your woodworking skills, especially with small pieces?  Then join us on Friday afternoons from 1 to 5 to build toys.  Most of the toys are donated to non-profit organizations for distribution to needy kids.  Some are sold to help offset the cost of our materials. No experience is needed.  As long as you have taken the Introduction to Guild Safety, you can join our group. Click here or email the Toy Build team.

Safety and Shop Operations: There wouldn't be a Guild without the shop and its resources. Help keep things in good working order, including your' fingers! Volunteers are needed for program leads, shop attendants, machine maintenance, hand tool maintenance, supply management, and others. Email the shop team to find out more about shop operations, maintenance, and safety.

Estate Sales: Helping with estate sales is a great way to get a first look at tools and equipment coming up for sale. Contact the estate team and check out estate sale processes.
