Chris started our March meeting with an excellent video on handsaws by Anne Briggs, covering types, body position, practice, vices and much more!

Anne showed the benefits of a Moxon Vice. Check out the following video on how to build one for yourself.

Anne also shows her Glen-Drake joinery saw – check out the following video where Kevin Glen Drake compares traditional Western and Japanese saws, and the reason for developing his own saw – fascinating!

After a lamingtons, tea and a chat we listened to Peter Sellers’ introduction to his desktop organiser – a great project to take on.

This led to some discussion on correctly centering a drill bit for attaching hinges – especially for small projects. Brian informed us of the centering bits that are available for this purpose. Click on the picture below for a bit more information.

Chris then showed members his 3 in 1 drill press upgrade – click on the picture from Woodsmith below if you are interested in building your own.

We finished the evening with Scott’s visit to the Sturt School For Wood open day in Mittagong.

Scott had also just received a book recommended at the School on Veneering – click on the book below for a bit more information.

Another great night – looking forward to our April meeting!
