Who We Are
The Central Florida Woodworkers’ Guild is a collaborative group of woodworkers who meet monthly to foster the craft of woodworking. Woodworkers of all skill levels, including those new to woodworking, are valued and welcome. We have amateur and professional members alike. Meetings consist of short presentations during the show and tell segment. The second half of the meeting is dedicated to a single in-depth presentation on various woodworking related topics. We also hands on shop events quarterly.

We meet on the second Thursday of each month, January through October, at the Woodcraft of Orlando, FL The meetings are from 7 to 9 pm. Guests are always welcome. Several other events are announced throughout the year; check our events page for details.

Standing at 89″ high, this impressive 18th century inspired armoire is built of curly maple. Raised panels adorn the sides and doors. This cabinet sits on top of ogee bracket feet. The dovetail drawers are hand cut.
A second view of the details.
Central Florida Woodworking Guild has teamed up with the South Florida Woodworking Guild to build urns for the Missing in America Project. The cremated remains of hundreds of military veterans are unclaimed each year. The mission of the project is to locate and inter our forgotten heroes. We will be needing more urns this fall so we are asking Guild members to plan on building more.
