Established in 1992, the Wangaratta Woodworkers club, or ‘Woodies’ as they are locally known, is an active and social club that welcomes men and women of all ages to join them for a coffee and chat, and to work on personal or club woodworking projects of all kinds.
Wang Woodies Projects
Members are welcome to work on any project, big or small. From large furniture pieces and other large projects to small projects including woodturned bowls, pen making, scrollsawing, pyrography and box making.
Your projects are only limited by your creativity and willingness to learn new skills.
There are also club projects you can get involved in such as helping with making prizes for the annual raffle and other ongoing projects with which you can really hone your skills.
What We Have:
Well equipped workshop
Lathes, Table saws, Bandsaws and Scrollsaws to name a few. The Woodies Shed is well equipped to handle all of your project needs.
Experience & Opportunities
Our members have extensive knowledge and experience in a wide range of wood working disciplines and techniques. It’s never too late to learn something new. Get involved in one of our club projects and learn to turn on the lathe, make boxes or toys, even furniture!
Great social atmosphere
There’s nothing our members love more than a cuppa and a good chat. With tea and coffee facilities and an open fire, the Woodies Shed is a great place to catch up and meet like minded people.
“Come along and make some woodshavings, or pop in for a cuppa.
You’re always welcome at the Woodies!”
