Welcome to Our Team Page!
Our Mission:

We are woodworkers united in the fight against cancer. Our goal for 2013 is to raise $10,000 for CancerCare, a national nonprofit organization that provides free, professional support services to anyone affected by cancer: people with cancer, caregivers, children, loved ones and the bereaved.

How You Can Help

You can help by either donating directly, or by participating in this years Charity Build. On November 4, 2013, I released an instructional video showing you how to build this years project: a Young Artist’s Easel. You can download the plans on the main website at http://woodworkersfightingcancer.com (courtesy of our friends at WOOD Magazine). All you have to do is build the easel and send me a photo by December 9th, 2013. I will then donate $5 to CancerCare for each picture I receive (one per person, please). We also have many corporate sponsors who are donating $5 per submission. Submit your photos here: http://www.thewoodwhisperer.com/contact/submit-your-project/

Our Accomplishments & History:

In 2010 I became friends with fellow woodworker Duane Moore who was suffering from pancreatic cancer. Nicole and I made a special trip out to Ohio to give Duane some one-on-one woodworking instruction and it was a life-changing experience for me. Inspired by Duane, I decided it was time for The Wood Whisperer to get involved in a charity and what better charity than the fight against cancer! Woodworkers Fighting Cancer was born out of a desire to rally the online woodworking community around a common cause that effects all of us in some way. I want woodworkers and non-woodworkers alike to be inspired by what our woodworking community is doing and perhaps even join us in the fight! Duane has since passed away and he will be missed. Without him, Woodworkers Fighting Cancer would never have come to fruition.

2010 - The Wood Whisperer Guild managed to raise nearly $10,000 for the American Cancer Society during one of our Guild Builds. The goal was to build a Shaker Table, and I personally donated $5 for every table made. 67 tables were completed and thanks to 158 contributors and numerous corporate sponsors, we raised over $9000! The first video below was our original announcement and the second is our celebration of the accomplishment.

2011 - $10,000 raised for LiveStrong. The goal this year was to build a rocking horse from a free plan provide by our friends at WOOD Magazine. 120 rocking horses were completed by the community and thanks to the numerous corporate sponsors matching our $1 for every rocking horse made (+ 5% of every new guild membership) & individual donations we raised almost $10,000!

2012 - $4600 raised for LiveStrong via a charity auction. I sold off a bunch of unused tools and donated 100% of the proceeds.

We are committed to raising funds for CancerCare. Like many, we have been touched by cancer in our family. Your support will help this national non-profit which provides free professional counseling, education, information and referrals, and financial assistance to individuals and families like mine – those facing a diagnosis of cancer.

Please support WFC! Make your tax-deductible donation today. CancerCare is among the nation’s highest-rated charities, with 89% of your contribution going towards those who need it most…so your donation really makes a difference.

Be as generous as you can. Your donations, along with my own, will give people with cancer and their loved ones a better, more hopeful future!
