Shop Memberships

The opportunity to purchase a Membership in our new Member Shop is one of the premier benefits of belonging to the San Diego Fine Woodworkers Association.  Our non-profit status and all volunteer staff allow us to offer one of the greatest values in woodworking! 

For a low annual rate, you will enjoy many benefits:


If you haven't seen the new Shop, call 858-230-7593 or write and make an appointment to come in for a tour.  Or just stop by.  We’re at 5360 Eastgate Mall, just off I-805 and Miramar Road


It’s important to understand that as a Shop Member, you are required to volunteer for a Shop position that will require, at a minimum, an average of 2 hours per month.  By becoming involved with the actual operation of the Shop, you not only help keep the Shop operating but you’ll meet and get to know other Shop Members.  We will work with you to find a position that fits your schedule and skill set.

Shop Membership Levels

We offer two Membership Levels, both of which entitle you to designated amounts of shop time called “slots”. Each “slot” is your opportunity to spend up to three hours in the Shop.


Silver Level Membership - $295/yr

This membership level is intended for the occasional user who may already have a shop at home. It includes 15 “slots” during the course of 12 months (from the day you purchase).


Gold Level Membership - $450/yr

This membership is ideal for any woodworker using this Shop on a regular basis. It includes 50 “slots” that can be used over a 12 month period (from the day you purchase).


These prices include your 3 part Safety Training and Certification Program that all Members are required to complete. Also included is Membership in the San Diego Fine Woodworkers Association.



This Membership includes a number of significant benefits such as discounts at most Woodworking suppliers such as Rockler, TH&H, and Frost Hardwood.. 


Additional Slots – 5 Slots for $40

This option is available only to Shop Members who have used all of their initial allocation of slots.
