Woodworkers to show their skills

YOU name it and our woodcrafters can make it out of timber.

The crafty bunch, from all walks of life, started out in professions ranging from farriers to metal workers, but all have now found a talent at chipping away at wood.

In the search of new woodcrafting talents and to share with the public what they can create the Warwick and District Woodcrafters have opened up their doors this week.

Publicity officer Ron Bryant said the Pittsworth Woodies were visiting the Rose City this weekend where there will be plenty of work on display to check out.

“There will be a display of all our woodworkers' pieces and there will be items for sale also,” Mr Bryant said.

“There are some pretty talented guys here working on all different items.”

When the Daily News visited yesterday the artists showed off their talents with three woodcrafters working on one of the most delicate items to be made from wood.

There were three violins being smoothed, a blanket box being fitted, a wall clock being perfected and many more superb wooden items coming to life.

Mr Bryant said anyone was welcome to go along and explore whether the club would be for them.

For $50 a year with a $10 membership fee all the tools you need to create a prized item are at your fingertips.

“It's good if you have the basic skill, and if people haven't there are plenty of people here to show you how,” Mr Bryant said.
