A not for profit club, fostering an interest in woodwork throughout the local community.

Our club has approximately 125 members including both men and women.  Groups are formed to meet the interests of the members - our common interest is a passion for woodworking.  Current groups include cabinet making, carving, woodturning, pyrography and scroll sawing, all groups operate from the club house.  The Club has a monthly general meeting of all members on the 1st Wednesday at 8pm in the CFA meeting room on Ironbark Rd, Yarrambat - visitors are most welcome.  The club house is next door. 

 

 

We are involved in club events during the year with our Annual Exhibition being the highlight of the year.  We also assist other community groups and associations on a regular basis and others on an ad hoc basis.

Whatever your skills, project ideas or ability we have them all covered. Check out the Club's special interest groups below.

New dust extraction system

We have a new dust extraction system installed and ready to be connected to the equipment. There have been a few design and installation problems but it wont be long now before it is up and running. A much better and safer system than the old original one which has served us well for many years but now not powerful enough for the extended clubrooms and extra equipment.

Great work at home during the lockdown

Well it looks like a lot of members have been very busy at home during the six months of the club's lock down and these pictures taken from the EDWC private facebook group page are only a sample of the fine work posted.

Pyrography Group

The word comes from the Greek “pur” (fire) and “graphos” (writing), meaning writing with fire. In modern practise, this is more drawing than writing, with some artists creating truly fantastic pieces of art.
