Our next meeting is Wednesday, May 8th at 6pm at the Dirigo High school woodshop.
We‘ve had a request for more Question and Answer time so our next meeting will be a round table discussion about current (or older favorite) projects of our members. Bring in something that you are working on or a finished project. We’ll talk about how it was made, what problems you ran into making it and what decisions you had to make along the way. It might include how to hold it on the lathe, how to finish the bottom, hollowing, embellishments if any, or what finish to use.
Bring in your project(s) or idea(s) for a piece and help everyone understand how it was made. Bring along any questions you might have about any aspect of turning and we can all build on what we know. You might also bring in a project that didn’t work (or blew up?). We often learn more from our failures than from our successes.
Also, we’ve had a club challenge suggestion to bring in an embellished egg. Any size, any embellishment. It might be turned decoration, paint, woodburning, inlay or whatever else you can think up.
This will be a kind of expanded Show and Tell but we will also have our usual Wood Raffle. See you then!
