Next Meeting: May 8, 2017

The next meeting of the Bell Woodturners
will be May 8, 2017
at Bell Community Center in Bell, Florida.

Next Meeting: Scott Crumpton will demonstrate turning wood pendants with colored acrylic/epoxy inlays.  The attached photo shows a couple done with metal powder and polyester resin.

This month we will be holding the drawing for the first three demo pieces of the year.  This will be your last chance to buy tickets if you’re interested in any of these pieces.

We’re going to try something new with the wood raffle/auction this month and do it as a silent auction.  Each piece will have a bid sheet attached.  If something interests you, write in a bid.

After Show+Tell, we’re going to take a short break of about 10min.  This will allow time to buy tickets for the demo pieces, bid on wood, and general discussion.

Following the break, the demo piece drawing will be held, wood bidding will end, and the demo will begin.

We will also be asking if anyone is interested in a sawdust session this Saturday.  We’re going to center it around cutting and preparing the wood for the lathe.  Chainsawing will be done.  Weather permitting.  Please consider if you’re interested in this topic and let us know at the meeting.

As always if you have items to show, we would love to see them. Also, any items you can donate to the group for raffles are appreciated.
