Presidentís Corner

 

Fellow members of the wood turners 2, I hope your new year started out better than our club new year. With the two past meetings having been canceled due to the weather, this year has started poorly.It is my hope that with the March meeting we can get off to a flying start,

 

First I would again remind you of getting stared building an inventory of objects for the fair, to raise money for Make-A-Wish.As you know, this is the time of the year that we have more time to turn, before good weather gets us busy with outside activities.

 

If fifty members turned ten items worth five dollars each, we could have twenty five hundred dollars raised toward our goal.Also, with that many turners, there is a better chance to have a variety which would improve sales.Let this be an entire club project.

 

Also, out vice-president, John OíNeil, has scheduled interesting demos for upcoming meetings. While on that subject, we are always looking for turners to demo their talents.If you are interested, speak to John.Iím sure there are turners that have demonstrated, that would guide you on how to present one. Give it a thought.

 

Hope to see you at this monthís meeting.

Ron Hudson

ELMERíS CORNER: Found in American Woodworker: Scratch-Free Flush Cuts

No matter how carefully, you cut with a flush-cutting saw, there is always the chance that scratch marks are left on the wood surface. To solve the problem, attach a playing card with double-faced tape on the sides of the saw blade. Now, when you cut the card limits the saw depth of the cut. By sawing the dowel halfway, then finish from the opposite side, the dowel stands a wee bit proud, but less scratching occurs. With quick finish sanding the dowel is flush.
