Featured Volunteers: Cincinnati Woodworking Club

The Cincinnati Woodworking Club (CWC), founded in 1982, is group of local hobbyists and professionals whose interests encompass all aspects of woodworking. Since 2015, the CWC has been partnering with New Life Furniture Bank and there are many ways that they help with our mission.  Members of the CWC created a small woodshop in our warehouse and developed a prototype, jigs, and assembly templates to create dining room tables, coffee tables and end tables for our clients. Members volunteer their time by cutting the wood for all furniture project and repair furniture that is damaged.  Occasionally, they will repurpose some of the furniture we receive, so that it is more useful to our clients too.  They also lead all table building events for our volunteer groups who assemble the tables. Thank you CWC for all of your time, dedication, and hard work!
