At our April meeting Brian and Chris showed us the washing and cooking stations they had the privilege of helping to make for our hosts – the Stromlo Forest Scout Group. The stations can be easily mounted on an ozito mitre saw stand, and are very economical and transportable. Thanks Chris and Brian!


Peter then gave his thoughts on the mystery jig kindly donated to the club and, with the help of our resident experts, we now have a clear answer! it’s a jig to provide precisely cut wedges for a turned segmented bowl.


For those interested in the process the following video from Woodworker’s Journal is quite informative.


Chris then gave us a presentation on options for cutting circles and curves. Members can view the full presentation on our new “Presentations” page – don’t forget to Login.


Following are some of the videos Chris found for us. However the Trammel video with Becky Krailicek is only available to Woodsmith subscribers, so we’ve shown an alternative below.

After a welcome break (with lamingtons!), Brian then showed us some dangerous cuts on the Triton Router Table – including mortises and shaped bearing cuts.

We finished the meeting with some contributions from members on their current projects. Check out John’s glass cabinet in the new “Presentations” page!

A great, value packed night!
