Here’s What Some Of Our Members Say

Been woodworking for years and then found the club so that I could extend my knowledge and meet new people.


Been carving looking for somewhere local to share my love of carving and found the Cooroora Wood working club and have been a member for years.

I took up scrollsawing in 2010 after doing pyrography for several years. I used to spend hours in my shed creating fretwork masterpieces for competitions. I also made and sold puzzles, wall hangings and names for children.  These days I enjoy making presents for family and friends and I love to teach fellow members the art of scrollsawing. Conducting demonstrations is very enjoyable too. A lot of ladies say to me, “It’s like sewing,” but I always found scrollsawing easier than sewing!


Life member and expert woodturner Alan Warner recently rose to our ‘Trash to Treasure’ challenge: I was in the workshop and noticed that someone had thrown a partly finished, broken bowl into the bin. It was badly cracked but I thought I might be able to save it. The repair job was a bit of a challenge but eventually I was able to shape it into a nice little bowl. So, this better go in the Trash to Treasure section!
