Shire Woodworking Club – August 2017 Newsletter
Shire Woodworking Club – August 2017 Newsletter posted below.
Huge 445 items in toy delivery to the Child Life and Music Therapists at Sydney Children’s Hospital on Wednesday 20th July.
Good article showing numbers of types of toys plus some items painted by the children.
I didn’t have any items in this delivery but dropped off 12 wooden trucks at the maxi day.
I am featured on page 8 displaying my stabilised burl turnings of a pen and multiple keyrings.
Some photos of the workshop after the cleanup day; shame Barry forgot to take before photos as there were major changes particularly under the wood storage.
Reminder for the plank competition judging next month; I will need to brace up if I am to get my project finished.
Will hopefully be submitting something like this:I bought the plans and the kit which includes the wheels and smoke stack.

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:
