Midwest Woodworkers Association


Promoting Quality Woodworking




The Midwest Woodworkers' Association is a not-for-profit organization founded in 1983.

  • Monthly Meetings:  We meet once a month at Sawdust Studios, 3150 Paris Road, Columbia MO.  Meetings are the 4th Monday at 6:30pm, except when it conflicts with a holiday and then an alternate date will be announced.  Meetings consist of general business, announcements, Show and Tell, a presentation and drawing for a door prize.  Presentations are always on a topic of interest to woodworkers and are combined with demonstrations.  Past demos have included topics such as sharpening tools, using scroll saws, lathe turning and swap meets.
  • Library:  We maintain a library of books, videos, magazines and plans for the use of any member.  The library is available at our monthly meetings.
  • Toy Project:  Many members are involved with making wooden toys for children in need.  Each year for the last twenty years, we have distributed toys to various organizations including:  Ronald McDonald House, Rainbow house, Coyote Hill,  the Salvation Army, and various Churches and Day Care centers in Columbia, MO.
  • Newsletter:  Our newsletter is sent either by mail or e-mail and informs members of the location and content of the next meeting.  There are interesting articles, hints, announcements, along with a recap of the previous meeting or event.
