The National Wood Carvers Association
Home of Chip Chats Magazine

If you whittle, carve, or sculpt wood, chances are you will enjoy membership in the National Wood Carvers Association. Ever since its humble beginning in 1953, the National Wood Carvers Association (NWCA) has shown remarkable success and growth, boasting members in every U.S. state, plus dozens of foreign countries.

NWCA’s aims are to promote woodcarving and fellowship among its members, encourage exhibitions and area get-togethers, list tool and wood suppliers — in short, anything that aids the carver and/or whittler.

Many distinguished professional woodcarvers in the U.S. and abroad share their know-how with fellow members. NWCA proudly lists several internationally famous authors of woodcarving books on its roster.

Membership dues are $16 per year for those living in the U.S. ($18 for Canadians, $22 for foreign members; U.S. funds only). This covers the costs of publishing and mailing Chip Chats, a bi-monthly magazine which contains articles and news of general interest, show reports, patterns, helpful hints and ideas, book reviews, sales outlets, etc.

Membership is open to everyone who carves and/or whittles, amateur or professional, and to persons who do not carve but have a reverence for the art. Just fill out a membership form and send it, along with your remittance, to:

National Wood Carvers Assoc.
