March 9, 2015 Meeting

Meeting highlights

1. Two new members joined the club. Our club web site is attracting people and our club   also needs to thank Lee Valley Tools for making people aware of our club.

2. There was some continuing discussion around developing a club logo

3. Glen Friesen reminded members of the Matisho Memorial in Waldheim on March 21st and 22nd. This is an excellent event which helps us try to draw new people into the wood turning community and raise money for Cancer Research.

4. Gordon Munn gave an excellent presentation on turning wine bottle stoppers. Gord shared his experience, showed some very interesting stoppers, made some great recommendations on quality suppliers of product, and shared where some good on line resources can be found, to help with design ideas.
