Eastern Massachussetts Guild of Woodworkers

Message from the President

Here we are deep into summer, but as we approach the end of July, I know you are all wondering “What does the coming year for the Guild involve”. Well, behind the scenes, folks have been hard at work putting together the events for the coming year. In the last couple of years, we have done Chairs, then Casework; this year our theme is Embellishments. I think we all know that after we master the art of joinery, design, and finishing, it is often the added details that truly set a piece apart. To embellish is to improve or beautify by adding detail or ornamentation. These additions can be banding, marquetry, inlay, relief carving, or other details.                                    Read More
