Wood you like one of these timber treats from new shop?

WOODEN goodies of all shapes and sizes are available at a South Burnett club's new store.

Chessboards, rolling pins and clocks are some of the handcrafted goods available at the South Burnett Woodcrafters' shop on King St, Kingaroy.

The club celebrated its 25th anniversary on Saturday by holding the grand opening of the store, an event which featured market stalls, woodcrafting demonstrations and face painting.

The Woodies Goodies group started from humble beginnings, with its six members working out of Jock Haffnod's workshop in February 1993.

There are only four of the club's founding members left: Eric Lewis, Peter Peacey, Noel Adlem and Malcolm Hoskins.

"It just grew and grew - we've got about 30 members now,” Mr Hoskins said.

The Woodcrafters moved their meetings to the trade hall at the Kingaroy Showgrounds, before working out of the Kingaroy Heritage Museum.

The club's new location, the old QRail buildling on King St, will give the club room to grow even more.

"It's excellent - a good location and plenty of parking,” Mr Adlem said.

The work shed also has a shop attached to it, so the club can sell its products.

Members of all walks of life take part in the club, including many women.

"It's an opportunity to share and teach,” Mr Hoskins said.

The Cooroora Woodworkers Club from Noosa visited their fellow club for the opening.

Cooroora president John Cantwell said the two clubs had visited each other annually for at least the past 10 years.

"It's a friendship between the woodworkers clubs with a shared interest in woodworking,” he said.

It was encouraging for the Sunshine Coast club to visit the new facility.

"It's always encouraging for new members with good facilities and more space,” Mr Cantwell said.

The Woodies Goodies store will be open on Tuesday and Saturday from 8.30am to 1.30pm.
