As part of the upcoming Open Day being held at the Walker Street Craft Centre, the Bundaberg Woodworkers Guild will be opening their doors.

To show the community what they are all about, there will be many different woodworking practices taking place at the Woodworker’s Guild on Saturday 14 August.

President of the Bundaberg Woodworkers Guild Steve Faulkner said the open day is a great chance for people to come down and explore all that is on offer.

“The open day showcases to people of Bundaberg and surrounding areas what the Woodworkers is all about,” he said.

“We will have everything to do with woodworking happening on the day, from woodturning to wood burning to scroll sawing and making small bits of furniture.

“We hope to have our sawmill operating as well.”

The store will be open for people to browse through, with something for everyone.

“We will be operating as normal on the day, with the sales room open as well to purchase gifts for future and lots of wooden items,” he said.

The Bundaberg Woodworkers Guild started in 1989, running for over 30 years, with about 75 odd members of all ages.

The group also work with a range of community organisations to develop items such as trophies.
