The Road to Recovery

After the fires members were meeting at other Woodies' workshops in order to keep on doing what we do best.Turn bits of wood into something beautiful, useful, or both!

Ron Green and Les Bamford

Ron and Les can be seen in Dave Smith's workshop working their magic making trucks,trains etc.

Rhona Jason-Smith

Rhona commenced this project at the shed before the fires.


With the program in place for members to meet at other member's workshops Rhona was able to finish her Japanese inspired septic tank cover.

Jenny Barnes


Jenny produced this puppet and the bird at a carving class by Jeff Dunne in Pambula.Jeff also does spoons if you're interested.

COVID19 Restrictions

Then members were unable to meet at all to work together so everyone is going it alone with magic results!
