Members enjoyed two great speakers at our April meeting.

Gordon Smith talked to us about his training in fine furniture and timber salvage, leading to his extensive timber recycling and holdings business. His passion for recycling, and not wasting the great natural resources of Canberra’s street trees, was an inspiration to us all!

Some of the questions he answered from members included how to identify the timber he recycled, and which species had similar properties. Gordon recommended these two books.

 
In regard timber identification, members might also remember the visit by Robin Cromer last year.

 
Our very own Peter Taylor also gave a fascinating presentation on Fans, Pressures, Flows and Ducts.

Peter recommended the following book as a great resource in developing your understanding of dust control, and what would best suit your workshop.

 
Looking forward to Peter’s next presentation!
