They have requested space themed toys to be included in the next delivery if possible, I will try and make some space rockets. Some good books for the library; I borrowed […]

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; […]

Shire Woodworking Club – 20th Year Anniversary in June 2018

Shire Woodworking Club – 20th Year Anniversary in June 2018. I have been a member for about 15 of these years and have seen huge changes in the members and the equipment available. We were always considered as inferior at the Cubby House Woodturners; a bit strange for me as I am still a member of both clubs. While we were based there we didn’t have many members who were only woodworkers but now there […]

Shire Woodworking Club – June 2018 Newsletter

Shire Woodworking Club – June 2018 Newsletter posted below. I wasn’t able to attend the May Maxi Day so all new to me. Great to see Doug celebrating his 97th birthday at the club.  Would be great if the club can get a grant to buy a laser cutter / engraver; looks complicated though!  Some good show and tell items and photos from the box making demonstration Another follow up on the Turps article from […]

Shire Woodworking Club – May 2018 Newsletter

Shire Woodworking Club – May 2018 Newsletter posted below. Article about workshop demo; the demonstration was good but hard to convey in a article. The table lamps presented were good and quite diverse. Some good show and tell items plus me showing my small train set plus some olive pens where I imported the timber from Jerusalem. Some members were keen on the pens but no-one showed  the money!    Follow up on the Turps […]

Shire Woodworking Club – April 2018 Newsletter

Shire Woodworking Club – April 2018 Newsletter posted below. Article showing latest delivery to Sydney Children’s Hospital with good photos. A lot of variety in the items delivered; nothing of mine as I have been a bit slack.    Profile of one of our youngest members @42 years; doesn’t drop the average much as weighted too heavily at older members. Some photos included from the Sydney Royal Easter Show, some additional photos that I took:   […]

Shire Woodworking Club – March 2018 Newsletter

Shire Woodworking Club – March 2018 Newsletter posted below. Main article was on the visit by representatives from Feast watson and Cabots demonstrating their products. This was very good and well attended.  A good chart showing the colours is included. The plank competition is coming up again; like last year it will be half a plank and must be made into a toy. I will enter but not sure at this stage what I will […]

Shire Woodworking Club – February 2018 Newsletter

Shire Woodworking Club – February 2018 Newsletter posted below. The club had too much wood – what a disaster! There was a mess in the storeroom as shown in the photos on the front page of the newsletter; unfortunately I was unable to make the cleanup but probably a good thing as I would probably have brough excess wood home and I have full shelves already.  The show and tell was very good; some great […]
