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.
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.)
Everything you need to know about hinges
With box making being of high interest lately, we will be having a presentation on the broad range of hinges available for boxes.
Members will open your eyes to more than 15 different types of box hinges in an interactive session.
If you’re a novice – this is a great opportunity to learn more.
If you’re an expert – this is a great opportunity for you to share your knowledge.
Plus: Brian Dawson with his “chaotic” cutting board and the
story of his Roubo bench
7 for 7.30pm Monday 2 October, 2017
at our workshop: 50 Spring St, Abbotsford.
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.
