Our next meeting is set for Tuesday May, 5, 2015 beginning at 6 PM in the Lyndon House Arts Center, 293 Hoyt St, Athens. Our demonstrator for the month is Frank Bowers. He will be turning a tri-cornered box from a cube. Frank has a great deal of expertise in turning and turning tools and will not only present an excellent demo but can answer almost any turning question you can come up with. Come at 5:30 PM if you can to help with set up. If you haven’t paid your dues by now you are delinquent. Time to pay. $30 for an individual membership or $35 for a family membership.
The Statham Sheep to Shawl event will be held on April 11th. Jenny Vosmeier Buley has contacted us about doing a demo from 10am-3pm. We have demonstrated at this event in the past and everyone enjoyed watching us turn. If you are interested, contact me at email@example.com and I will give you her contact phone number. Volunteer, folks!!
To send out to our group:
“Our next woodturning meeting should be something special. We will discuss woods for turning. In addition we will have a wood vendor in attendance (bring money if you want to buy wood) and Mark Sillay, a renowned turner will demonstrate. And as an added bonus we will have a wood quiz. Ten types of wood will be set out and there will be prizes for those who can identify them all. So make sure you make this meeting.”
If you want to pre-order any thing from our wood vendor check out their web site www.2treeboyz.com . If you haven’t paid your 2015 dues now is the time. Individual dues are $30 and family dues are $35 – a real bargain. We look forward to seeing you there.
