Our August meeting was cancelled due to covid but, if the gods are kind to us, we will be having a meeting on October 4.
Our two main speakers are:
Kevin Wallace on restoring planes
Kevin is President of the Hornsby Men’s Shed and passionate about restoring planes. He’s going to pass on all the skills needed to turn a rusty, knocked about old plane into a gleaming tool that will take perfect shavings from even the toughest wood.
Henry Black on furniture design, development, and refinement
Henry is a founding member of the Woodworkers Group which became our Association. An apprentice patternmaker at the Navy’s Garden Island dockyard, he worked for Leyland Australia and then the university of NSW. With an increasing interest in woodworking, he has developed designs for furniture for Parliament House. He has developed interesting designs for three-and four-legged chairs.
As well as our main speakers there will be others offering insights into woodworking as well as an auction of second-hand tools.

4 William St, Five Dock. Plenty of parking is available.
We will be meeting in the William Room on the first floor.
