News from the Shed May 2022


A couple of items of more than usual interest to justify the early note.


We have the opportunity for visit to inspect this enterprise sometime around the middle of June.

At this stage it looks like numbers will be very limited __probably the first 20 places will fill very quickly__ so hiring a bus will not be justified. Carpooling will be the way to go so at this stage we are asking for names of those interested together with details of vehicle capacity and willingness to drive. 

We are hopeful, numbers being interested, in having a lunch or afternoon tea following the visit.

If you are interested please REPLY to the newsletter from the shed email indicating your name, whether you will carpool and how many passengers you can carry.


Thanks largely to the machine usage donation, your Shed has purchased, from its own resources, a new item of equipment.

The Hare and Forbes Bobbin Sander expands our woodworkers’ ability in finishing more complex curved shapes to a professional standard. The usual fees (around $5 / hour) apply and you can speak to one of the mentors about how it works.
