The Woodwork Institute of California has put forth a set of guidelines, called WIC specifications, for satisfactory standards in the woodworking industry for that area. WIC was established in 1951, and shortly after that distributed their millwork standards manual to all members. Since then their standards have become a watchword in the industry, and the manual, which was free to begin with, is now a sought-after publication for serious woodworkers everywhere.

Setting WIC Specifications

Early on WIC established their certified compliance program. Now, around 80 percent of all construction projects in California require compliance with WIC specifications with 50 percent requiring actual certified compliance. This is an indication of the high regard in which WIC is held, not just in California, but also beyond.

WIC strives to expand the industry by promoting the ways in which good woodworking practices can be used to good effect in the building and construction trade. This is just one way in which WIC actively promotes the use of the woodworking trade, and thus an increase of jobs within the industry. In addition to guidelines for WIC specifications, the Institute also encourages high ethical practices within the woodworking trade.

The Institute's journal is called Archetype, and is distributed to members twice yearly. The full color publication is another source of knowledge about the craft of millwork and further promotes WIC specifications. The Business Owner is a newsletter published by WIC twice a month to help those in the woodwork business improve services and expand their interests.
