Members

The NSW Woodworkers Association members include highly skilled professional woodworkers, semi-professionals and hobbyists – anyone who loves working with wood. We welcome men and women as new members and encourage them to learn new skills from their fellow members.

General meetings
The association meets at 7 for 7.30 pm, on the first Monday of every second month: February, April, June, August, October and December. We talk about materials and techniques and exchange clues and news in the relaxed atmosphere of like-minded people sharing skills and knowledge. We have a guest speaker or demonstrator and visitors and friends are always welcome. And members will often do a show and tell explaining a current project. 

(Catering: $5 each, which includes entry in the draw for lucky door prizes.)  


Next meeting     Note: new venue

One of Australia’s greatest woodworkers
The Association is delighted that our guest speaker at the first meeting of 2018 will be Leon Sadubin –  master woodworker, designer, furniture maker and sculptor. 

Leon was one of the founding members of Woodworkers Association of NSW.   Now, 40 years on, Leon will recount how and why it all started and the changes that he has seen over that time in woodworking in Australia.  

It will be a fascinating talk of interest to all members. Come along and meet a true expert with a wealth of knowledge.

Leon’s talk will be followed by a panel discussion about what such changes mean for our Association.  Panel members will include some of our distinguished professional members –  Darren Oates, Stuart Faulkner, Peter Stibilj and Scott Zeller.

                      7:15pm  Monday 5 February, 2018
                     at Chiswick Community Centre
  Corner of Blackwall Point Rd & Parkview Rd, Chiswick.

Other activities
Members enjoy the regular get-togethers in our workshop to work on their own projects or just watch other members and learn new skills and ideas. We have competitions within our association as well as competitions between other groups. An example of this is the Create from a crate competition in which some of Australia’s most gifted woodworkers build extraordinary products using just the wood from disused pallets.

We also make visits to other workshops and see demonstrations of new tools, machines and products.
