Woodwork on show at Cooroy

QUEENSLAND'S top craftsmen go head to head at the Wood and Craft Festival in Cooroy's Memorial Hall on May 7 and 8.

The event is now in its 18th year and attracts almost 3000 spectators.

Woodwork clubs from Warwick through to Rockhampton and all points in between will compete for a perpetual shield and a sliding compound bevel saw valued at $1200.

There are five categories to enter – wood turning, carving, fret work, general wood work and pyrography.

The craftsmen have put in weeks and often months of hard work into creating masterpieces.

People will be truly amazed by what can be done with a basic piece of timber.

There will be stalls, crafts for sale and lots of demonstrations.

A wooden rocking horse is the main raffle, the winner of which will be drawn on the Saturday afternoon.

Visitors will see the Cooroora Sawmill in action on what will be a great day out for all ages.

Inquiries Kevin Brewer 5442 5178.
