Sonoma County Woodworkers' Association recognizes that discrimination - including, but not limited to, systemic racism - is real. We are an inclusive organization, and we welcome all people with an interest in the woodworking craft.

The SCWA welcomes beginning or experienced woodworkers and invites you to JOIN US and become part of our active organization.  You will enhance your woodworking education and enjoy all of our "members only" benefits.
