Next General Meeting

Monday, October 7

Moisture and wood

  • The problems it causes
  • Why it’s so damaging
  • How to predict how moisture affects wood
  • What you can do to prevent disasters in woodworking projects.

The way moisture affects wood is one of the most important challenges woodworkers face.

We asked Steve Townsend to research the issue and report back to us.  The result is a most informative and useful illustrated talk.

Cauls cauls cauls

Clamping cauls can dramatically improve the quality of your glue-ups – and take off a lot of stress.  You can buy them or make your own.

Gordon Joseph tells us why he copied John Brassell‘s range of cauls and John will show us what’s so useful about them.

John Kirkwood will show us the amazing Rockler cauls for gluing up finger-jointed boxes.


Mitch McDermott from Japanese Tools is going to come to our next meeting with a few items that may be of interest to members (including diamond stones, David!).

If people want to buy something from the website (, Mitch could bring them with him (if it’s in stock) to save people travelling all the way to Kogarah.
