Here it is ...Our new Pride & Joy

After a couple of attempts for funding from the government grants via AMSA we finally cracked it & bought this new Deluxe Router Table.
 It will replace the old one we had & is much more upmarket & easier to use. 
The old router table was handed on to Mannering Park (Manno) Men's Shed who were very grateful for the donation as they didn't have one. We also supplied them with a Makita router to suit the table.
 A big thank you to the Federal Government (Health) for their continued support of Men's Sheds & to AMSA for passing on the   funding needed to purchase this machine.

Being the professionals we are at making beehives the word is out that we can make anything relating to beekeeping. 
In that light we were asked to tackle a Kenyan style beehive.
 It needed to be made from at least 25mm thick hardwood planks & a pitched roof for ventilation.. It also needed numerous horizontal slats for the bees to build the combs on.
After we sourced the timber the ever reliable Bryan Frendin & a couple of others got stuck into it. As can be seen in the photos there was quite a bit of work in it but on completion it was exactly what the client required. If it works successfully we're sure  others will want to follow suit.
Good Job Fellas
