Woodies Group

9.30am, Thursday 9th May

Meeting Place: To be advised

Our last trip was a visit to the Victorian Parliament for an architectural tour, and it was most interesting.

Today,  we will be at “home”  and Barrie Oppermann will be talking about Lithium batteries. This will be our first  technology topic in the new era.  We didn’t have an “around the room” session in March, but there will be plenty of time for this in May. The meeting will commence at 9.30am.


Usually referred to as the “Woodies”, the Woodworking & Home Maintenance Group, which was established in 1989, meets on the second Thursday of each month, for a “home” meeting, at which members exchange ideas and discuss problems related to home maintenance, or for an “away” meeting – a visit to a place of interest, e.g., furniture factory, car manufacturer, boat builder, timber yard, etc.

Since the Group was established, members have visited 102 different organisations, enjoyed 58 talks and demonstrations by members, heard 56 “Man behind the Chisel” presentations, and held 134 meetings in members’ homes.

“Away” meetings include Gippsland Aeronautics in Morwell, VicRoads ‘Traffic Management Centre in Kew, the Liberator Restoration Project in Werribee, the RAAF Museum at Point Cook, the TAA Museum in Airport West, the Bombardier factory in Dandenong,  and the Diamond Valley Railway.
