Here's a novel idea 
 Function Centre Piece 
to sit on a table

Longstanding member Mark Segal's son is to be married, so he & his bride asked dad to make a small wishing well to sit on a table.  Instead of guests bringing a present they will throw money into the well & perhaps make a wish while doing so.
It took a little while to make but should be worth the effort.

The kids have gotta be happy with this Mark!

Young Bob McIllroy is one of our resident wood turners & makes many quality items for the Shed to sell.
He is also an expert on a scroll saw. He has given a lot of members valuable tuition on how to use them to get the best outcome possible.

Here he is with a Dragon Clock he made in 45min

Yeah right Bob

On the 17th February Shed members hosted the Department of Fair Trading for an informative toolbox talk on scams.
In attendance was the N.S.W State Minister, Matthew Mason Cox, his representative from The Entrance Michael Sharp, main lecturer Sue Dean & her assistant Paul Coles. The Minister outlined in detail what his portfolio covered & why it is so necessary in government.
Sue then proceeded to inform the members in depth, of old scams many knew about, & most of  new sophisticated scams that are current today.
Members were invited to participate & comment or ask questions as the lecture progressed.
The session lasted more than the scheduled 40min but it was pleasing to see so many members thinking & raising their concerns as various issues were discussed.
Many thanks to The Department of Fair Trading for  addressing these issues in such an informative & updated manner.

A good rollup for this one!
