West Penn Hardwoods Tour

Click on thumbnail for full size image

On Saturday, November 13th, we had a chance to tour the West Penn Hardwoods Company in Olean NY

Rocky Mehta, the President of the company, greets us as we arrive

While we wait for everyone to arrive, some of the folks explore the pen blank area

Throughout the office area there are examples of the products West Penn handles

Because they handle many species of exotic woods, turnings from those woods are on display

These examples show the beauty of the finished items on woods that you might not be familiar with

One of the larger buildings houses the hardwood and flooring

There is an amazing assortment of woods from local species to exotics

West Penn set out several tables of turning related items for our tour

More of the imported turning stock

In addition, there were skids of shorts and left overs to look through

Kim Mehta gets enough of the group in one spot to kick off the tour

Rocky gives Jim Hilburger a quote on the waterfall Bubinga

Some more examples of finished turnings in the species West Penn sells

Some of the club members pick through a box of shorts

Around noon, the pizzas arrive for lunch
