Welcome to the AWA Website
2014 Was a great year for the club. Our toy projects far exceeded previous years member production. We are looking forward to many more club activities and programs for our members in 2015. So consider joining AWA and expanding your woodworking activities. More specific information about club activities can be found in the Forum section of our website where members can post pictures and information about the club.
Albuquerque Woodworkers Association was formed in 1981 by Nick Claus, Scott Taylor and Sevn Hanson to provide a place for local woodworkers to exchange ideas and information about woodworking as both a hobby and profession. Our members come from many different careers and backgrounds from business, science and technology to professional crafts and trades.
In addition to our educational and informational activities the AWA has groups of members involved in charitable activities in our area. In 2013 the club donated 3000+ hand made wooden toys to various charities for distribution to children in need. In addition we also donated Approx. 1200 toys to the Albuquerque Police Dept. to be placed in officers patrol cars so they may distribute them to children during police calls.
