Welcome to the Northeastern Woodworkers Association

Showcase is the primary fundraising event for the NWA and we depend on it for much needed income to run our organization.  Due to the cancellation of 2020 Showcase, the NWA has lost money from show preparations as well as ticket and vendor booth sales. Please help us out if you can. A donation of any amount* is welcome. Thank you!

– Rich Cerruto, NWA President 2019-2020

The Northeastern Woodworkers Association (NWA) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) charitable organization, dedicated to the advancement of the arts and crafts of fine woodworking through education, programs and activities.

Formed in New York State’s Capital District in 1991 for amateur and professional woodworkers of all ages, the NWA helps its members learn from each other and from outside experts, in a variety of ways. The association’s aim is to provide a common meeting ground for lovers of woodworking who want to know more about wood and the techniques for forming it.
