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.
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!
