“THE Woodies Wonderful Weekend of Wood was a huge success” said the event co-ordinator and vice president Julie Breen. It was held on April 30 – May 1 at the Blackall Range Woodworkers Guild (also known as the Montville Woodies) headquarters.

“People came from all over southeast Queensland to enjoy the varied activities on display, and no-one was disappointed,” according to Woodies president Max Barrenger. Box making, scroll-sawing, pyrography and other skills were on display as well as a huge and wonderful array of timber items made by members for sale on both days.

President Max and vice president and co-ordinator Julie expressed enthusiastic thanks to everyone involved in the Woodies Wonderful Weekend of Wood including the public, the media for excellent publicity, and Woodies members who assisted to make the event such a wonderful success.
