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:   […]

Workshop update – pen organisation and disassembly

Workshop update – pen organisation and disassembly. Have been turning some different pens recently and found that I didn’t know what blanks I had worked on; the plastic drawers as below are good to keep kits and bushings in but also including blanks was a bit messy.      I saw something similar the the stand below on Instagram and thought it was good as you can see the quantity for each type. Looks a […]

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 […]

Shire Woodworking Club – June 2004 Newsletter for Triton Owners Club of Oyster Bay

The Shire Woodworking Club used to be called the Triton Owners Club of Oyster Bay before the move to Lilli Pilli. Here is the June 2004 newsletter recently redistributed to show a profile on Doug Wickens who is the clubs oldest member and will be 97 in April; and he still turns up to Saturday maxi days. I had recently joined as a member at that time but was not very active. Interesting to see […]

Shire Woodworking Club – January 2018 Newsletter

Shire Woodworking Club – January 2018 Newsletter posted below. Geoff Tong was a deserving winner of the SWC Excellence Award; he makes some great items, mostly turnings. Other category winners were also deserving; one of these years I need to enter something! Numbers of entries have reduced since plank competition entries were excluded. Great turnout for the Christmas lunch, and a great feed. I am in the photo at the back in the left row. […]

Shire Woodworking Club – December 2017 Newsletter

Shire Woodworking Club – December 2017 Newsletter posted below. Mostly about the Christmas donations and special Santa’s Post Box.  Total toy donations of 1471 for year is impressive; some of these were my trucks! I didn’t make the show and tell this month as I was unable to attend the November maxi day as I was in New Zealand     

Shire Woodworking Club – November 2017 Newsletter

Shire Woodworking Club – November 2017 Newsletter posted below. Good pictures from the Gymea Village Spring Fair; great to see that this was the most successful in the clubs history. Photos of the plank competition winners; not a great one of me!  Another photo of me with two of my pens at the show and tell. Next years maxi day program looks ok, very difficult to confirm in advance.    Good to experience different scroll […]
