Meeting November 13, 2019

WESTERN MOUNTAIN WOODTURNERS

Join us this Wednesday, November 13th when Doug Timberlake will be our demonstrator. Doug is an accomplished woodturner and has learned several new decorative embellishing techniques that we have seen on some of his show and tell items. Word has it that his demo may be of a birdhouse ornament with a burned/carved bark roof.

Please bring in whatever you have been working on for our Show and Tell and remember that it doesn’t have be a masterpiece. We often learn more from our mistakes and revisions along the way. Sharing that “learning curve” helps everyone.

We will also have our famous Wood Raffle.

Wednesday, December 11 will be our annual Pot Luck Christmas Party. Please bring a main dish or dessert to share as well as a serving utensil if needed. Plates and silverware, etc. will be provided as well as soft drinks and coffee. Our Yankee Swap Gift Exchange is always a favorite especially with handmade items (preferable made by you).

Our January 8th meeting has Jed Malcore tentatively scheduled to show us what he has learned from his apprenticeship with Kim Dailey when they were chosen as one of five teams (and the only woodturners) in the 2019 Maine Craft Apprentice Program (CAP). It will be fun to hear Jed and Kim talk about this.

In the meantime, we look forward to seeing you this Wednesday with Doug Timberlake!

As always, if school at RSU #56 in cancelled, we are cancelled.
