Furniture maker in Touch Wood workshop

Whether you've got spare time on your hands or you're actively retired, we need regular volunteers to help out in our busy reclaimed wood workshop.
You'll be unloading and moving supplies, measuring, shaping and assembling wood and assisting with customer orders. These roles suit people of all ages, job-seekers, retired or semi-retired people, college students or DIY enthusiasts... all you need is a basic level of physical fitness and the ability to work in a team.
Give us a bell to explore your options!

Our wood collections and workshop operate Mon-Fri 8.30am-4pm.
