The Mid-Hudson Woodworkers (MHW) is a chapter of the Northeastern Woodworkers Association (NWA), “a group of people who love woodworking and want to get better at it”; their base of operations is NY's Capital District. We, Mid-Hudson, are based in the Kingston, NY area. NWA also has Special Interest Groups (SIGs) whose focus is on a particular subset of woodworking.
