Macadamia Turning Project

The Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries is investigating alternative uses for salvaged macadamia nut trees from orchards (see May edition of Turning Talk for more details). Last week, Gaz Hopewell and John Huth from DAF delivered a truckload of green macadamia logs to WSQ. There is plenty there for everyone! The pieces range in diameter from 100 to 250 mm, and from 600 to 1200 mm in length. The logs are stored under the workshop or outside under the back verandah. Some pieces have already been cut into blanks suitable for pens or knife handles (available in the Auditorium). All WSQ members are invited to take one or two (or more) pieces of the timber and to use at least some of it for turning one or more items that can be given to Gaz for him to photograph for his research report. Gaz has asked us to complete a simple survey form for each piece that we make for the project; hard copies of the survey form are available in the Library and an electronic copy is attached. Please complete a survey form for each piece that you produce for Gaz. Gaz has also provided pen and pencil kits, knife blades and other accessories that can be used in the project. They can be collected from the Library. If you would like to use any of these accessories, please sign the Inventory form when you take them so we can keep track of who has them. Completed items and Survey Forms must be retuned to WSQ on or before Tuesday 19 June, when Gaz will again visit the club to pick them up and to hear our feedback. Many thanks to those members who have already taken some of the timber and accessories and started working on the project.
