Russian doll

Joe O'Neill has been working with Temple Street Hospital to produce a few sets of Russian dolls. He has managed to get donations of wood from The Carpentry Store, Strahan Timber, Clara Joinery and Hobbies and Woodworkers . All he needs now is a few more volunteers to make the dolls. Anyone interested should contact Joe at 087 623 0162. These need to be done over the next few weeks so please contact Joe NOW.

   Trade stands at monthly meetingsCarpentry store logo

Chairman, Bob Finley, is working to have a trade stannd at each of the monthly Saturday meetings. Next month, February, The Carpentry Store will attend the meeting. This is a great opportunity to get those essential items for your turning. If you have a specific requirement why not give them a call before the meeting and let them know what you need?

  Notes from Committee's first meeting

Our new Chairman, Bob Finley, ran his first meeting following the Saturday Chapter meeting.

Prior to the Chapter meeting Bob passed out two papers to everyone. The first asked for suggestions on any changes people would like to make in order to improve how the Chapter could be run. Only 4 replies were received. Click here to see some of the suggestions put forward. Of course, Bob would be delighted to receive any suggestions so please keep them coming.

The second paper outlined some of Bob's own suggestions. Click here to see these.

One of Bob's suggestions was to put a picture of ALL entries to the competitions on the website. This was implemented immediately and Bob himself has provided the images
