The Cooroora Wood and Craft Show is an annual event where the competitions attracts entries from many regional woodworking clubs and schools. The quality of the workmanship is of the highest order and all the entries are on public display during the show. Also on display are entries from our members in the Cooroora Woodworkers Club competition. Prizes are awarded in the categories of Novice, Intermediate and Master in a wide variety of skills including Cabinet Making, Pyrography, Scroll-saw Work, Carving and Turning. Last year a new section was introduced – Wood Art to honour the late Keith Beckman who was a founding member of the club. Expect to see some interesting creations.
Our club members are always happy to pass on knowledge so visitors are encouraged to ask about techniques, tricks and materials .
Our timber milling team will be milling slabs of local timber on the Lucas mill. The logs, which have been donated to the club, are retrieved by the milling team within the vicinity of Cooroy. After sawing, the slabs are air seasoned for 1 to 2 years and are then available to club members. Many of the fine woodwork items you will see at the show are made from these timbers.
Members are lucky to have access to such fine timbers as Red Cedar, Hoop Pine, Bunya Pine, Mango, Jacarada, Forest Red Gum, Swamp Mahogany, Camphor Laurel and many more. If you are looking for a surfaced slab for an outdoor setting you might find just the right piece here. Or if you are lucky the team may be able to mill a slab to your requirement.
