April Meeting 2019

What a great turnout with forty members and two guests coming for a fun and information packed evening. Paul opened the meeting with a discussion about where we will continue to meet. Persephone is getting very busy with show productions and may have us meet in the backstage theater. Paul will update us next meeting.

Jim Beebe discussed upcoming meeting demos and asked for help with the organizing. Gary and Earl agreed to help him. Jim then introduced a new tantalizing feature he calls “Get to Know Your Turner”. This will help to introduce in more detail some of the people in our club. One person will interview a member and we will all benefit from the information. Who will it be???? Don’t miss the next meeting to find out.

Gord Munn did a wonderful job of leading us through his techniques for transforming a growing tree into pieces suitable for turning. He started with great samples of tree sections with appropriate chainsaw cuts to show how to cut the tree down, dig out bark from inclusions and plan how you would proceed with cutting into turning blanks. Here are some photos of his presentation.
Thanks for a very informative demo Gord.
