Living Choice Alloura Waters in Davistown has a large well-equipped residents’ workshop mainly for woodwork activities. There is a wide range of power tools such as saws, lathes, drill presses and hand tools. Much of the equipment has been donated by residents and there are large amounts of odd timber, screws, nails etc available. Several of the workshop regulars have compiled a slide show of their products which is well worth viewing. They intend to update its contents from time to time.
Just click on the link below to see the slide show – it has some nice background music too!
The workshop is open all day on Tuesdays and Thursdays, with a one-hour break for lunch, and is supervised by a core group of residents who attend regularly and construct various items either for sale or donation to various charities. The core group will assist residents to repair personal timber items where possible. Apart from the regular core group, residents are most welcome to use the workshop facilities on a casual basis. However all users, both core group members and casual users, must agree to a health and safety assessment to ensure their capability to operate the power equipment safely.
Take a look as the slideshow of the fantastic work the workshop team has created in the first quarter of the year – see https://spark.adobe.com/video/dROA9T9afWpNi
