  • Guidance on the best places to source timber, hardware and consumables… and where to avoid

Our monthly meetings are at the stunning Cross Barn in Odiham close to Jct 5 of the M3, and we always look forward to welcoming new members.

Membership of the Southern Fellowship of Woodworkers (SFWW) is open to all at a very modest annual subscription. We encourage members to share their experiences and many of us give presentations or demonstrations of techiques we have learnt, or the tools we use, to members at our monthly meetings. We welcome new members, particularly those who are just starting out  as woodworkers, whether professionally or as a rewarding and consuming hobby. If you are not sure whether to join then you are most welcome to come along as a guest to see if you like us.


There are no upcoming events at this time.
