ANNOUNCEMENTS

Jim Vasi, a member of Woodturners I will present a bandsaw tutorial in March.

April meeting will be April 19th because the school will be closed at the regular time for Spring break

 

Old Business

 

A reminder to all members, that the fair is just around the corner, and now is a good time to start to make items for that event. Bring them into any meeting, and we will store them for the fair.

 

New Business

Jim Hilburger is offering a hands on session at Barbís Barn on the following dates:

Mar 3; Mar 17; and Mar 31 if needed

Each session will be from 9AM to 3PM; Lunch 12 sharp

Cost: $5.00

He will be covering his production turning techniques of items that he demoed at the Jan meeting. These are all items that can be sold at the fair. He will also do sharpening.

Call Barb if interested at 652-4156. There is a limit of participants to each session.

 

From Jake Debski:

Since our February meeting had weather related poor attendance, I will present this at the March meeting.

I am going to ask for a vote on a program for May. I would like to bring in a professional turner/ demonstrator for our May meeting, and 2 day of hands on at Barbís Barn. Starting Thursday the 10th, and continuing Friday, 11 and Saturday, 12. The presenter will be William Grumbine

Bill demoed at the í06 Totally Turning in Albany, he was the featured presenter at Vega booth in Louisville (AAW Symposium), and has received kudos for his many demos around the country in recent years. He also teaches classes at his Studio (shop) in Kutztown, PA. I have personally viewed his 2 DVDs and found them both to be excellent. He will demonstrate and teach bowl turning. Bill is an impressing figure and his presentation will entertain as well as instruct. He has a no nonsense, single approach to bowl turning we all can learn from. The hands on will be primarily for beginners and intermediates, but even the folks that donít feel they need more instruction will get something from the evening demo.

Bill charges $150 for the demo and $400 per day for the hands on, plus expenses. Estimated cost will be about $1300. We would recoup some of the cost by charging $30 for members and $40 for member of other clubs to attend the hands on, 10 participants per/day. The Thursday demo would be free to all out members in good standing. Thank you for your consideration and see you in March. Jake Debski

When most of us get wood, itís either found or given to us. Often we question what it might be. If you have a high-speed internet connection this web site can be very helpful.
