Shire Woodworking Club – December 2018 Newsletter
Shire Woodworking Club – December 2018 Newsletter posted below.
Unfortunately this month we lost two long standing members, Fred and Ian; with Fred being a foundation member as well. Good write up on both of them
I think that they are going to name a corner of the workshop as “Fred’s Corner” as this is where he assembled a lot of his tables and chairs.
947 charitable toy and therapy items for the year; a great effort by the club members; I managed some trucks but will need to do more next year.
A good turnout for two members 90th celebrations; great photos
We now have funding of $15,200 for a laser cutter / engraver; quite a bit of work has been done on narrowing options down to be recommended to the committee.
Good turnout for the show and tell; I particularly liked Don’s carving even though it is a work in progress. I need to locate some small branches so I can make the crayons Barry picked up on his travels.
