After 30 days of intense building, Wood Whisperer Guild members have finally finished their tables. 67 people participated and thanks to 158 contributors and numerous sponsors, we managed to donate over $8000 to the American Cancer Society!

I would like to thank everyone who donated and participated. And of course I would like to thank Duane Moore, the man who this whole event is dedicated to. I hope you will all join me in wishing Duane the best of luck.

If you still want to donate, we are asking that you simply donate directly to the American Cancer Society.

You the man, Marc! I am proud of our wood working brothers and sisters coming together for a great cause.

I think this is a great way to get involved, has anyone heard from Duane? My thoughts and prayers go out to him, hope he is back in the shop with his son.

I’m not sure whether it’s possible that woodwhisperer sells the plans (if there are more than one design involved in that very project) in pdf format and donate portion of the proceed to the ACS.

As always, a great job. I have to admit that I am surprised by the variety of tables that were completed. Simply Amazing, and thank you for organizing this. Keep stepping up and taking the lead! Yo Joe!

Marc et al

This was a terrific job. Seeing this, I wish I had jumped in on it as well. I will be sure to participate next time. Was this only open to Guild members?

all the best

@chelios The Guild Build was indeed a Guild member event. Obviously anyone could build along if they wanted to since it was just a standard Shaker table design. But the videos and plans were made available as part of the Guild membership.

Thanks everyone for the kind words and encouragement!

Hi to all and a special thanks to Marc.

While tearing up and wishing the excitment from this build and gesture was not ending I hope our gesture and donations reaches out to a family in need or even better finds a cure!

I know personally that I have been lifted by this in so many ways I could never explain it to you. I am not good with words and I know I could never express how this has made me feel and helped my family in such a time of need and support. The great fellow woodworkers have been so kind and shown how great people are nothing like the crapwe see on TV. To my fellow FRIENDS and woodworkers I love and thank you from the bottom of my heart and to you Mr. Marc and your terrific wife Nicole always remember the only things you save are the things you give away! Cancer will never rob my family of this event nor can it take it from my heart. When my final days are at an end just think of the terrific memories I will have from this to take with me. God Bless and I love all of you Duane.
