Monday night recap, November 11, 2019


Aside from the horrible weather this past Monday night, we had a terrific evening.  Our guest speaker came with a truck load of awesome turning equipment, Ken Rude from Branches to Bowls spoke in great detail about the Vic Mark line of lathes and the line of Carter turning tools.  A number of members left with smiles, as they were able to make purchases on the spot, congratulations to everyone and our thanks to Ken and Vern for making the drive from the Hamilton Woodworking show to our club meeting.

Next week, Kade Bolger will be sharing a demonstration on how to add colour to your projects.  A while back, Kade brought in a beautiful pieces which he had coloured, Kade will be running through the steps he takes to colour his pieces.  This will be a great evening.

Volunteers are needed to help dismantle a partially built pipe organ, we’re hoping to repurpose the wood for club projects, if you can help, please email Rob at your earliest convenience.  

Doug Ricketts has a friend who is selling approximately two or three cherry burls.  The number of burls and the amount for each burl still needs to be determined by Doug’s friend.  If you are interested, please contact Doug directly via email (email address), please note, this will be on a first come first serve basis.  Pick up details and dates will be confirmed by Doug.
