Tauranga Woodcrafters’ Guild

A long tradition of do-it-yourself creativity

About Us: We are a group of hobby woodworkers keen to share our love of wood and our skills with one another and with anyone who would like to join our community.
We live in a country with beautiful timbers and with a long tradition of do-it-yourself creativity.

Our Club has been active since 1987, and we have some 70 members, of all ages and skills levels.
We have built up a well equipped workshop of good woodworking machinery and hand tools.

The major event of our year is our Annual Show, when we put our finished work on display for the public to enjoy and perhaps to purchase; along with live displays of some of our crafts in action.

We have special interest groups which each meet monthly covering the skills of
* Carving,
* Cabinet-Making,
* Intarsia,
* Marquetry,
* Scroll sawing,
* Woodturning.

The full Club also meets once a month for activities and demonstrations across the varied disciplines, and for wider fellowship among members.
Visitors are very welcome at this meeting and for those thinking of joining the club it is an excellent venue to meet other Guild members and perhaps complete the membership paperwork.
