    Thanks Lola and whatisname

    Had a great day and managed to meet some members for the 1st time and have a bit of yarn with anybody whom would talk with me.
    And thanks to Tony for the lift
    thanks to Paul for bringing down the truck load of various goodies

    Took a few photos and managed to somehow overexpose a number of them
    anyway here they are (apologies for the overexposed lot):

    A too tidy shed and the leanto out the front with tables of timber etc for sale

    Brett standing around and supervising as usual. I wish I had of been there, they are always great days but it wasn't to be unfortunately. That vege garden looks like it would make a great shed, I bet the veges will be pleased when they see it.

    Thank you all for coming along to make the day a success, especially the very long distance travellers, Simplicity & Sally, and Bushmiller.

    Also, thanks for the assistance in putting the metal sheets & sleepers away - it was done in no time!

    Lola and I very much enjoyed the day, and it's only the presence of a great bunch of people that makes them such good days.

    Really good to see some new faces too, and hope they can come again to future FGTs.

    I might have to ask for some your designs, Peter. I'm more on the critical side than the creative! Christmas is approaching so definitely on the cards (no pun intended).

    Default who owns this?

    Found in NCA's car:
    a hunk of steel with a worm eaten handle and a piece of unidentified (bloomin hard) hardwood

    froe_8355.jpg

    anyway turned the unidentified hardwood into a froe handle and found a stray bit of merbau to make a basher (mallet for the uneducated)

    Fletty found a froe at Bellingen Market with a crack in the blade- no sale
    Bushmiller gave Pacman a long term borrow of the froe blade
    Fencefurniture donated the Handle for the Froe
    Pat and Sawdustmaker offered to turn the handle
    NCArcher transported the bits
    Sawdustmaker made the handle and the mallet
    WoodCollector donated some timber
    Pacman gave some to some members and carved some spoons

    Well you live and learn. I thought the correct term tor the object you hit a froe with was a "maul". I will call it a basher from now on.
