Need a woodworker for a project?
A number of Guild members take on woodworking projects, typically furniture based, not home building. Your request is sent to a select list of active Guild members interested in jobs.
Some members are professional woodworkers, and some are very talented amateurs. But you are responsible for vetting and selecting the right craftsman for your particular needs. The Woodworkers Guild of Georgia is not responsible for the outcome of the project.
Examples of projects performed include:
- Refinishing a dining room table.
- Repairing scratches and dents from moving.
- Repairing old dining chairs that have loosened.
- Replicating a missing drawer in a dresser bought at a garage sale.
- Building new kitchen cabinet doors.
- Building a rack to hang scarves.
- Countless small specialty items produced to support someone’s business.
What you need to do:
Description: Provide a brief description of the task. A few sentences is usually enough to get people interested to contact you for more information.
- Photo: Include one or two photos to help explain the project. JPEG photos work best.
- Simple: Keep the initial contact simple. Allow a member to decide to contact you at which time you can go into additional detail.
- Location: Please include your geographic location (SE Portland, Forest Grove, etc).
- Contact: Include preferred contact phone number and please INCLUDE YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS IN THE BODY OF TEXT.
- Referral: We’re pleased if you tell us how you found out about us.
- On Completion: Your feedback to the jobs coordinator at the link below helps tremendously to know how we are doing.
The Guild’s role is only to communicate the need to those members who do this kind of work. The Guild is not responsible for the project.
Requests are generally sent out on the weekend to over 850 members who expressed an interest in doing jobs. You will work directly with the woodworker, arrange your own fees, payment, pickup, delivery and timelines.
