June is time to renew your membership, still only $50 per year!

The 2019-20 membership badges will also include your approved equipment accreditation categories.

Preparation for the new accreditation has shown that many members will need to add items to complete new skill categories, as incomplete categories won't show on your badge. List of who can accredit is on display in the shed, so ask them for help. Please make effort to check/update WELL BEFORE end of June.
IF you find an error, talk to Claudio, Spencer or one of the other acreditors.

Gerry is extending his excelent work on accreditation by drafting a template Standard Operating Proceedure (SOP), to improve both our accreditation and overall safety in the shed. His work as already highlighted a need to improve integration and consistency across all our processes, from induction, acreditation to the Shed Charter and Rules.

Paul, a Canadian Master Carpenter is setting up an ongoing project to make comfy deck chairs. He also recently completed build a very nice base for a marble table top. This is for sale $150, see photos below.

The shed upgraded the jointer-planer and purchased a large new cyclone dust extractor for the table saw.

The new external rear storage racks are nearing completion, so we will need help moving timber as well as re-furbishing the existing outside storage.

The new chairs have been very well received as they are both strudy and comfortable!

Coming soon: August is the AGM and this hopefully will include voting for a refined and trimmed down Shed Charter and Rules. Current vacancies include Vice President, Secretary, Shed Manager and three general committee members. We also hope to get some added members as understudies, particularly to help ease workload in day to day running of the shed, projects and helping members.
