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
