Shire Woodworking Club – September 2017 Newsletter

Shire Woodworking Club – September 2017 Newsletter

Shire Woodworking Club – September 2017 Newsletter posted below. Good turnout for the AGM, I am on the toy making subcommittee again.  Good to see that all positions were filled before the AGM; definitely not the case in most clubs. The main committee does a great job and are very committed.   Overview of the years activities; I didn’t realise that we had delivered 1193 items to the Randwick Children’s Hospital plus the Christmas charity donations. I delivered 10 toy…

The Cubby House Turners Woodies Inc – August 2017 Newsletter

Current Cubby House Turners Woodies club newsletter below. Great picture of Ray Elyard in his workshop; I have never managed to create as many streamers during one turning. Geoff Tong showing his segmented segmented lidded box that he presented at the Shire Woodworkers Club the previous week.  Some good looking boxes for show and tell items but still need more general woodwork items. They are getting back into the themed maxi days which I think is a good idea as…

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…

The Cubby House Turners Woodies Inc – July 2017 Newsletter

The Cubby House Turners Woodies Inc – July 2017 Newsletter

Current Cubby House Turners Woodies club newsletter below. Only one member passed away last month; although as the average age of members is 80 this will occur. Some good looking show and tell items but a poor showing on the day plus need more general woodwork items. They are getting back into the themed maxi days which I think is a good idea as long as there is enough warning.

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…

Shire Woodworking Club – June 2017 Newsletter

Shire Woodworking Club – June 2017 Newsletter posted below. Great article with pictures about the club’s toymaking activities; unfortunately I am unable to attend due to work.

Great photo of Terry Murphy on page 3 demonstrating woodturning…

The Cubby House Turners Woodies Inc – May 2017 Newsletter

The Cubby House Turners Woodies Inc – May 2017 Newsletter

Current Cubby House Turners Woodies club newsletter below. Not a lot happening in this months newsletter; some good looking items at show and tell but mostly turned items plus an article on hand planes.. There are always brain teasers if you are interested in these; most are reasonably difficult.   Unfortunately two members died recently; I went to Ken Stuart’s funeral which had a good turnout of club members – he will be missed.

Shire Woodworking Club – May Newsletter

Shire Woodworking Club – May Newsletter posted below. I was not able to attend the club’s April maxi day so was interested in viewing the jigs presented by members; good photos and articles but nothing like actually seeing the jigs and hearing the comments yourself.   Some great photos from the Sydney Royal Easter Show woodworking entries; good to see that a Cubby House member won a prize with his perforated platter. I actually visited the Royal Easter Show this year…
