Shire Woodworking Club – July 2018 Newsletter
Shire Woodworking Club – July 2018 Newsletter posted below.
Quite a lot about the clubs 20th anniversary, I arrived at the Maxi Day late so missed the cake cutting and speeches. Did manage to win $15 in the raffle which was the first win for a long time.
Quite interesting demo on wheel making, I have one of the good cutters at home but have only tried it with pine or other light woods; sounds like it will go better with a dense wood. The clamps for the drill press are a great idea; I have already been injured when a piece I was cutting caught and spun making a mess of my thumb.
Haven’t tried on the lathe but have use a hole cutter with mixed success.
A good article on sawing etiquette; good for everyone to read as a refresher.
Not many items displayed for show and tell; the scroll saw item by Stephen was amazing
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:
