Guild members help with woodworking projects

Need a woodworker for a project?  Contact the Guild.

A number of Guild members take on projects, typically furniture based, not home building.  Your request is sent to a select mail list of active Guild members interested in jobs.  Typically each request gets two to four people interested in your type of project.  

Some members are professional woodworkers, some very talented beginners.  But in whoever responds, you can count on quality work to be of utmost importance.

We have provided this service since before 2010 and have had no complaints.  Sadly for the administrator, few customers provide any feedback.  You can help f you get help on a project.

Examples of projects performed include:

  • Refinishing a dining room table
  • Repairing scratches and dents from moving
  • Repairing a couple of old dining chairs that have loosened
  • Replicating a missing drawer in a dresser bought at a garage sale
  • Building new kitchen cabinet doors
  • Building a rack to hang scarves.
  • Countless small specialty items produced to support someone’s business

What you need to do:

  1. Description: Provide a brief description of the task.  A few sentences usually do it.  We don’t need to know all the history.  Just tell us what you’d like done.
  2. Photo: Include at MOST one or two photos if it helps.  DoNot Send multiple pictures from many angles.  Photos are quite often unnecessary in first contact.  Publishing limitations do not allow large picture sizes. Reduce them If you can.  
  3. Simple: Keep the initial  contact simple.  Allow a member to decide to contact you at which time you can go into additional detail.
  4. Location: Plase include your geographic location (SE Portland, Forest Grove, etc)
  5. Contact: Include preferred contact phone number and/or email address.  Email will be extracted from your request but it makes extra work for the coordinator.
  6. Referral: We’re pleased if you tell us how you found out about us. 
  7. On Completion: It helps tremendously to know we are succeeding if you write back to the Email Coordinator with any feedback you care to share.

Email your request to the Email Coordinator

Your request will be posted to the Odd Jobs mailing list.  You will work directly with the woodworkers, arrange your own fees, payment, pickup, delivery and timelines.  The Guild’s role is only to communicate the need to those members who do this kind of work.  The Guild is not responsible for the project.

Woodworkers on this list are active members of the Guild.  If they drop out of the Guild, they are automatically filtered off the mailing list.
