Special projects of the
Annapolis Woodworkers Guild
- a display booth manned by members at the annual Timonium wood show
- crafting and distributing of wooden items to Sarah’s House, a local shelter for broken families
- building park benches for the William Paca House on behalf of the Historic Annapolis Foundation
- participating in the restoration of the cupola on the Maryland State House
- constructing architect-designed bird houses for a Habitat for Humanity fund-raising auction — one member’s creation brought over $900 to Habitat
- building of collection boxes and making signs for the S. P. C. A.
- participating in improvement and renovation projects for local community parks
The AWG Board of Directors accepts projects from various non profit or community organizations contingent upon a volunteer team leader being identified to head the project. The Project leader then forms a team of volunteers to accomplish the task. Normally the requesting organization provides the raw material and plans while the Guild members provide the expertise.
Currently there are two projects that offer an opportunity for members to participate.
- BENCHES for Hammond-Harwood House.
- AUCTION ITEMS for Arundel Habitat for Humanity’s Art Auction fund raiser. The event will be held in March 2006 at Homestead Gardens. More information will be in the newsletter.
Occasionally we have the opportunity to participate in unique projects like the COPPER BEECH TREE.
