County Fair Turnings, By the time this goes to press all the events would have passed I am sure that Bud Louie and Ken would like to state. their appreciation for the volunteers that made this a success We should also thank them for their efforts Thanks everyone. Also keep this in mind for next year,Instant Gallery. Again another impressive exhibition this month If you are a beginner it is important to bring in your work I have. found that when I have felt brave enough to do so that I have benefited by the encouragement Everyone started out the. same way remember,August s Demonstration, This month we had a demonstration by Bill Tyler The subject was turning a shop mallet I have found that they are the.
best tool for setting the wood for spindle work I also have just recently priced several made in Sweden that was nice but. very expensive, Bill s choice of wood was laminated beech but any hard wood like maple oak or cherry would work too The tools that. he used were the roughing gouge a scraper and a spindle gouge Bill preferred using the scraper but a skew would work too. Any time that one can practice with your skew you should do it. You should remember that you do not want the mallet to stray on your work bench so making it with a flat top is key I. made my first ones to be beautiful and when I can find them because they have rolled off the table they work well. The club thanks Bill for his time and expertise,September s Demonstration. Don Orr will demonstrate basic bowl turning He has done this for the symposiums and along with his demo on turning. a weed pot is what got me hooked He asks that if you want to view closely and he encourages you to do so that you wear. eye protection,Membership, At each meeting Mariruth will be passing a clipboard with names and addresses Please check yours for accuracy She is. attempting to correct all errors making sure that all members receive the meeting notices and can be contacted either by. email or telephone Thank you Mariruth for your efforts.
