The club’s traditional focus on wood turning has been expanded with growing attention to scroll saw work, intarsia, wood carving, pyrography and furniture making to cater for a wider range of interests.
Training on the use of major equipment is given on a one to one basis and signed off after competency.
While the club occasionally arranges classes in some specific aspects of woodcraft, experienced club members readily provide advice and assistance to new members on request.
The preparation of timber for club projects or for sale is also undertaken.
Workshop nights involve demonstrations with members encouraged to participate.
Morning workshop sessions allow members to work on their own projects, learn new skills or simply watch others at work whereas night meetings and workshops usually conclude with tea and coffee provided by the club at a minimum cost. Morning workshops also include a coffee/tea break.
General meetings are held monthly (except December) to deal with club business and usually conclude with a Show and Tell session of members work.

* Organising the Woodcraft section of the annual Fraser Coast Show in Maryborough, held in May.
