Welcome to the Woodworkers Association of NSW

The Woodworkers Association of NSW was formed in 1978 by woodworking enthusiasts, for professional and amateur woodworkers of all levels.

The Association continues to be a forum for enjoying creativity and camaraderie amongst woodworkers. We promote skill building and an appreciation of fine woodworking across all experience and skill levels.
