Monday night recap, January 13, 2020


Great meeting last night, presentation by yours truly regarding the making of picture frames.  We went through the basics of cutting, routing, clamping and mounting a picture for a handmade picture frame.  Great feedback from the membership, awesome tips and tricks from everyone.

Next week, Greg Wallace from Kilian Tools will be at the club, Greg makes and sells Nanograin carbide woodworking tools.  As well, from our conversation last day, we’ll also be taking about feather boards, everyone is encouraged to bring in your feather board or if you have another method, bring it in so everyone can see it.

Attached is an article found in the current issue of Wood magazine (issue #266, March 2020) regarding 3-D illusion cutting boards, I thought it might be an interesting read for the membership.

The Scouts are back this year, Mike Kellar is looking for volunteers to help with the Kub Kars program, current dates booked are January 22nd, January 28th, February 5th, February 12th and February 18th.  If you can help out, please contact Mike directly.  Note, when the Scouts are in the shop, the regular open shop night or turning night will be cancelled, the calendar will be updated.
