Our facilities are open for the convenience of our members at the following times.



The Woodturning group is the main focus of the Woodturners Society of Queensland, the sessions are open to both experienced and novice turners. Beginners training courses are required to be completed unless a satisfactory skill level with the machinery can be demonstrated. There are a range of items that members have made from rolling pins to pens, vases, bowls, cups, and segmented items. Members can use the provided lathes and tools or just discuss ideas with other members in a social environment.

The Woodturning groups meet:
8:00am – 12:00pm Tuesday
1:00pm – 3:30pm Tuesday
6:00pm – 9:00pm Tuesday

Box Making

In our weekly workshops, a convenor will guide you through the basics of making a very simple box suitable for the beginner to more sophisticated pieces for experienced woodworkers. You can work at your own pace and benefit from the diverse experience and skills of other group members. We have the equipment for you to learn measuring, cutting, planing, sawing, routering and surface finishing on beautiful timber to produce something special.

The box making group meeting times:
1:00pm – 4:00pm Tuesday


Pyrography is the art of burning wood, this allows for the creation of amazing works. Many of the members like to use sheets of light coloured woods such as jacaranda, to create images, other use pyrography to enhance other wood items.

The Pyrography group meets: 10:30am-2:30pm Tuesday

Toy Making

We’re always looking for new members and volunteers, of all skill levels, to help us meet our goal of making 1,000 wooden toys each year for charities and children in hospitals. You might prefer to make toys from start to end, or focus on a task like sanding or painting. We’re happy for you to do this in our workshop during scheduled sessions, or in your own home at your leisure.

Toy group meeting times:
8:00am – 12:00pm Tuesday
8:00am – 3:00pm 1st and 3rd Friday
