DEMO

Auction Night. Lots of good stuff was brought in by member to be auctioned off. Jake Debski did a fine job as the auctioneer. The results, as you can see from the treasurerís report, were very successful.

 

ELMERíS CORNER:

Hereís one I found in Woodsmith: Splinter-free plywood cuts.

It seems that the veneer on hardwood plywood just keeps getting thinner all the time. Because itís so thin, it splinters quite easily. Taping the veneer at the cutting line works to a degree, but there is still too much splintering.

Dampening the veneer with isopropyl alcohol softens it enough to minimize splintering on the cut edge. The alcohol is a better choice than water because it doesnít raise the

grain and it evaporates more quickly.

 

Respectfully submitted,

Muriel Kummer
