Bell Woodturners meet at 7:00 pm on the second Thursday of each month at the Bell Community Center in Bell, Florida.
Next Meeting: December 14, 2017
This Thursday, December 14, we will be having our annual Christmas Party. Same time and location as the regular meetings, 7PM at the Bell Community Center.
All members and their partners or guest are welcome. Please bring a covered dish or desert and any serving utensils needed. The meat and soft drinks will be provided. (If not yet a member, just join.)
If you would like to engage in our somewhat crazy gift exchange, bring a hand crafted gift wrapped to conceal its contents and giver. Preferred gifts are wood turnings from the turners or any type of hand made gift from your spouse, partner, or friend if they would like to participate, or you can bring an extra woodturning for them.
Please remember that this gift exchange is being done in the spirit of having a little fun. You should expect the gift you open to be “stolen” away and not be too upset about it. The rules are simple: Anyone who donates a gift gets a number. Play goes in numerical order. You my pick a wrapped gift from the table or steal an already opened gift. When a gift is stolen, the victim gets to pick another from the table. Number 1 picks first, but gets to steal last. A given gift can only be stolen twice, thus being #1 is not as good as it would seem. No fighting.
Don Geiger is looking for some cedar shavings for use with his pottery work. If you have some shavings or some cedar he can make shavings from, please bring them to the meeting.
As always if you have items to show, we would love to see them – or items for our raffle – we would love raffle them off.
Please bring your work to display and share, any items you would like to donate for auction and plan on a great evening with some of the best Woodturners in the area.
If you have extra wood laying around, bring it in for our auction. And we are always looking for members to demo their talent to the club.
Let’s have a great meeting, everyone BRING A FRIEND.
We are still looking for members who would like to do a demo for the club. This is your chance to get started in the exciting field of Wood Turning Demonstration. Everyone has something they can share with each other.
The club’s demo day and sale will be held on October 21 at the Bell community Center.
Bell Woodturners was established in the year 2000 in Bell, Florida to serve local woodturners with education, fraternity and sharing our turned wood art with each other and our community.
