Central Highlands Rural Health will be the recipients of a large size chess and draught set, to be used by its clients.

The chess and draught pieces were made using CNC (computer numerical controlled) cutters and routers recently purchase by the Shed with grants from the Daylesford District Community Bank and Hepburn Shire Council.

Work on the project was the culmination of the efforts by many of the members led by CNC guru Brian Murphy and the ever reliable Ken Ferguson.

Men’s Shed President, David Robertson said “It was a great project that involved many of the Shed members. It was also gratifying to be able to provide a service to such a worthwhile group as CHRH.” David also highlighted that the introduction of CNC and 3D printing had provided a great stimulus to many in the Shed who were incorporating these technologies into the own projects.

The Daylesford Men’s Shed at Victoria Park is open from 9:30 am on Mondays and Thursdays (COVID restrictions permitting). For more information about the Men’s Shed, visit their website.
