Oberon Steam & Sturt Wood School Open Weekend February 2016

 Once again we visited Oberon Steam Fest its been a few years since we had our last drive out there. We normally have a far more important event our grandsons birthday but it was celebrated during the week.

Below a FlexClipper as it leaves the grounds.


 A very nice Chinese miniature Cabinet.

Got to catch up with an old friend work mate from yeas back meeting Dave and his wife Marrisa and their four children. Got time to drool over his shed and what was in it.
 I spotted this up in the rafters its for cutting Ice Blocks or for  cutting bails.

Dave during the day rang to say he had some logs for me although not Walnut as first described this beautiful Cherry will be much appreciated and used for something special. The Cherry tree had come down at Jenolan Caves it used to be at the south end of the main building. In my days when taking coach tours of school children there in season i would pinch Cherries off the tree. 

My only purchase a neat little pop rivert consatina unit.

On Sunday although Saturday was a long day we decided we were fit enough to head down to Mittagong and Sturt Wood School for the second day of its Open weekend. One display was this magnificent Tool cabinet made by Pheobe (the lady in blue), full of Colon Clenton hand made tools.

These fellows as well as myself all in awe of the whole unit, unfortunate I did not take a photo of the Sassafras book matched doors.
