Some of the members gathering before the meeting starts

President Jim Vasi gets the meeting started

We welcomed two new members into the club

With a cap of 80, potential members often have to wait years until they can join

Bob Ball got the show and tell started

Bob's turning had carving on it as well as some finishing issues

Jim Vasi explains his "bow tie" technique

A template is used with a special router bit to create the inlay area on the turning

The template mounting needs to be considered

There is a template for the inlay area and a template to create the inlay material

The inlay material is created using any material desired for contrast

The final result shows a contrasting bow tie decorating an otherwise unwanted split

Frank Stanko showed some of his platters made from crotch wood

He also shared a technique to "create spalting lines" where they can help with wood flaws

Frank had a nice assortment of spalted bowls and crotch wood platters

After the show and tell session, we moved into the "ask the experts" question and answer session
