About Us

The Southland Woodworkers Guild is a not for profit organisation based at 5 Mary Street, Thompson Turnbull Park, Invercargill 9810. ( see map under contact )

We provide a fantastic place for people to meet, commune in fellowship, and to work and learn about the different formats of working with wood.

The Workshop

We have equipment and tools for the use by members, and there are plenty members who can offer advice on techniques and give tips on, lathe turning, carving, use of the scroll saw, cabinet making, safe use of woodworking machinery, and tools, and the safe upkeep of machinery and tools, and much more.

The safety aspect is of great importance here.

  1. Would I be able to attend the workshop on one of the days? I am 15 years old and I want to learn woodworking for a course I am doing at school.
