Simple Toy


Carolyn and I confirmed that our AGM will be held in September and that as we had both been working as President and secretary for the past four years, it was time for some new ideas and to let someone else take on those roles. We would not be retiring from the committee, just not standing for re-election in those positions.

We recently ran our first intermediate veneering workshop at Ian Houghton’s in Mt Lawley.

With six participants of varying skill levels, Ian started by explaining the different techniques that he is presently using on his projects, including how to stain your own veneers and which method will achieve the best results.

It is always enjoyable when we have a joint meeting with Lake Monger Community Shed, I think it is the different group of people and venue that all adds up to a vibrant atmosphere where everyone wants to learn something new.

Well, I was not sure how our workshop was going to go, would everyone finish it all on the first day or would we still have homework to complete on day two?

In the end it worked out quite well, with just the right amount of time for refreshments at the end of the day.
