July 2014

This Thursday, July 10, 2014, Don Geiger will be doing the second half of his demo on bowl bottoms, inside and out. Don started this demo a few months back but we had some electrical malfunctions and equipment malfunctions and Don was not able to finish. If you turn bowls this demo is a MUST see. Even my wife who works in clay, not wood, said that she got a lot out of this demo. Doors open at about 6:00 pm and meeting starts at 7:00 pm.

This week Charles Watson and team are teaching woodturning to eleven 4H members. If you would like to help, please contact me and I will put you in touch with Charles. This event is this week only, starting at 9:00 am each day and ending in the afternoon.

This coming Saturday we will be having our annual open house and sale day. Come and do some turning, invite a friend and introduce them to woodturning. We will have several lathes set up for some demos, so you may want to bring some tools and a chunk of wood to turn.

The demo and sale day will be held at the Bell Community Center in Bell Fl. We will start at 9:00 am and go until about 3:00 or 4:00 depending on number of guests we have.

Paula Nicks has just received a fresh supply of CA glue and accelerators. She has thick, thin and medium. This will be available for sale at our meeting on Thursday.

I have been informed, by several members several times, that the chairs in the center are not very comfortable. I encourage you to bring a chair that is comfortable for you and use that instead of the folding chairs in the community center.

If you are interested in getting a discount from Hartville Tools please see Kent Harriss about the details.

Our yearly demo day sale has a date: Saturday, July 12. Please plan joining other club members for a great day of fun and turning. We will discuss the time and promotion for the demo day at the meeting.
