Woodworking Cause

The Woodworking Cause is lead by Joshua Hogendorn, and receives quite a lot of help from Craig Hudson-Taylor. We're aiming to provide a shop that can cater for construction needs through to fine cabinetry and carving.

We currently hang out every Thursday from 6pm onwards, come by and have a chat, build some things!

You can view our Operating Policy here on the Wiki
