Club publicity officer Ian Withers said five club members were at the open day showing how to turn a piece of wood into a work of art.
At the open day there were two lathes and a selection of creations made by members.
"We had a boy, who had never turned a piece of wood before in his life, come down and give it a go," Mr Withers said.
Gore Woodworkers Club president Lyall Butson said it was a wonderful day and it was a good chance for members to exhibit their creations.
Exhibits included a snake made out of driftwood, trucks, cars and even an egg, bacon and sausage breakfast made entirely out of wood by Mr Butson.
Mr Withers said 15 prospective new members had registered their interest in joining the club during the day.
This would boost member numbers by 75 per cent as the club only had 20 members at this present time, making it a very successful first open day for the club.
