The San Fernando Valley Woodworkers (SFVW) was formed in 1988 for the purpose of enhancing skills, providing information and sharing the joys of working with wood. None of this group knows everything, but between the lot of us, we know a whole bunch.
Our membership reflects a cross section of woodworking interests and skill levels – both hobbyist and professional. This is an open (not exclusive) club; anyone interested in woodworking is encouraged to attend, ask questions, become a member, join in discussions, and enjoy the experience. Our members come from all around the Los Angeles area and, of course, all are very welcome.
