Whether you are thinking about what you want to do after high school, beginning a new chapter in your life, or simply looking for a stable career, one thing rings true: the wood industry has a place for you.
If you think woodworking is just for DIY hobbyists or that the wood industry has seen its best days, think again.
From craftsmen to carpenters and machine operators to CAD designers, the wood industry is a sustainable, evolving industry.
96 percent of U.S. consumption of industrial wood comes from domestic supplies.¹
As a collaboration between trade associations representing different sectors of the woodworking industry, our purpose is to improve the perception of manufacturing industry careers and strengthen the wood industry workforce.
