Woodwork on show
THERE is everything from a square rigger to a spare bed at the Exhibition of Fine Woodwork on show this weekend at the Cavanbah Centre.
The exhibition sprawls across the hall of the centre with furniture, wood carving, wood turning, intarsia and joinery in all shapes and sizes all on display. It overflows down the hallway where you will find fancy timber dog kennels and wood-working machinery.
And if you nip out the back, which you should do, the Coffs Harbour Doll Club has put on a display of dolls and is raising money for the State Emergency Services with a raffle.
All the items on display are for sale, so this is an excellent place to pick up a craftsman-made gift or some furniture for yourself.
Patron, Ted Bailey, who opened the three-day exhibition yesterday, has been visiting and supporting the exhibition since it began almost 30 years ago in the old Coffs Harbour Civic Centre and has seen it grow from demonstrations of woodworking tools and machinery to a display of finely-crafted timber work.
The exhibition is open today and tomorrow; 9am to 5pm today, and tomorrow open from 9am to 4pm.
