Terry O’Loughlin  

Maker of Furniture and Woodworking Tools

As an adjunct to making furniture, I began making woodworking tools, including marking-out tools, mallets, chisels, saws and planes.  Without any metalworking background, over the years I have acquired some skills and have developed my own techniques.   I have also fettled and restored commercially manufactured tools.  I have won prizes at the Guild’s Exhibition and in three tool making competitions run by the Australian Wood Review.

Not long after moving to Canberra in 1986, I joined the Guild, and have been a member ever since.  I am a founding attendee of the Furniture Special Interest Group.  I was appointed Shed Boss shortly after the Shed was opened in late 2002.  This entails ensuring that the Shed runs smoothly and safely.  I have to keep track of tools and equipment and am on hand on Tuesdays and Thursdays to assist members with advice and use of machinery.

I have run workshops covering basic woodworking, making shooting boards and fettling or tuning planes.  I have had articles published in the Australian Woodworker and Australian wood Review.
