Shire Woodworking Club – July 2017 Newsletter
Shire Woodworking Club – July 2017 Newsletter posted below.
Interesting presentation at last maxi day by Ray Tregoning on saw blades; article with pictures included below.
Good article about the Sydney Timber & Working with Wood Show with some photos. I was also disappointed with the stalls this year as it has been getting smaller each year. I was able to go in my lunch break and I was back in 1.5 hours including the walk from the office!
I bought the hand sander as shown in the photo and will include a review in my next workshop update.
My injury photo and tip appears in the Tips & Tricks section, some good ones there; well worth a read.
Again a good mixture of items at show & tell; I might take the sander on Saturday to show as I am not a regular contributor. Was also thinking about showing my recent resin burl turning.

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:
