Shire Woodworking Club – October 2018 Newsletter
Shire Woodworking Club – October 2018 Newsletter posted below.
A lot to see in this months newsletter with the photos from the plank competition entries along with a delivery to the Sydney Children’s Hospital of 195 items.
I am featured in the division C category; I got 3rd equal this year; last year I got third!
Some great entries in all three categories; quite different considering we all had the same pine planks to use and all had to make toys.
We were only supposed to use 10% additional items but some of the entries particularly in category a stretched this somewhat.
There was also a show area where items could be displayed but not much talking about them as is usual. I brought along some pens and razer kits to show.
Some of these items were quite spectacular particularly the boxes with marquetry and engraving as highlighted on page 11. I am looking forward to the club purchasing our own engraver; hopefully someone will be able to use it for me!
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:
