The Cubby House Turners Woodies Inc
Finally managed to make it back to the The Cubby House Turners Woodies in Sydney in December (last visited in June) and organised getting the email newsletter. I have created a Cubby House page with older newsletters that will get updated gradually.
This was a purely woodturning club when I joined years ago but after the Shire Woodworking Club moved to separate premises a few years ago the club moved towards general woodworking as well.
They were the Southern Region Woodturners Guild at that time but then departed from the guild and renamed the club.
Still predominately a woodturning club with about 7 lathes they are also active in toy making for local charities. I am a member but have not been involved in the toy making activities.
There are some spectacular turners at the club; you can see some of the objects in the newsletter showing the 2016 maxi day winners.2017-01 Cubbyhouse news January 17clr (1)
I am an accountant who uses woodwork as a way to escape computers. I work in the back half of a tandem garage under the house; effectively a basement that also houses my wife’s car. I have a reasonable set of tools and am getting more into hand tools, mainly due to the lack of noise and dust minimization. I live in Sydney Australia and am a active member of The Shire Woodworking Club, Cubby House Turners & Woodies Inc and The Traditional Tools Group Inc Why Hugo’s Woodshop? All decent website options with Gary were taken so I had to look for something else! Hugo is our 3 year old Ragdoll cat who is very nosy and likes investigating the garage / workshop:
