The purpose of the Wooden Artifacts Group (WAG) is to improve knowledge of all subjects related to the conservation of wooden objects, to promote proficiency and skill in the practice of conservation of those objects, and to disseminate technical and professional information related to them. It deals with topics such as upholstery ethnographic carvings, architecture paintings on wood panels, insect fumigation, and, of course furniture.

Formed in 1986, the group now has more than 350 members.
