"Hey, Donald!" "Yo, Daffy!" "Psst, Howard."
Well there is more than one way to call ducks and on Tuesday,
February 2 Jack Reyome will be showing us how he makes duck calls.
The meeting will start at 6:30 PM, but please come early to enjoy chatting
with other turners and have a soft drink or cup of coffee before the meeting
gets under way.
We'll be holding the raffle once again. If you have anything turning
related you'd like to donate to the raffle (spare tools, wood, a new
lathe you don't know what to do with), please bring it with you and we'll
add it to the table. So, what have you been working on lately? Bring a few of your latest
turnings to share with the rest of us. We'd love to hear what they're
made from and how you turned them. Shirts or hats you ordered in December and did not yet pick it/them up
are ready. I'll have them for you at the meeting. If you want to order
a shirt (denim long or short sleeve or polo) or a hat (yellow or khaki)
with the Waxhaw Woodturners logo, I'l be taking orders.
Shirts are $20.00 each ($2.00 extra to have your name embroidered on
the denim shirts; $3.00 extra for sizes above 2XXL).
Hats are $7.00 each. I'll be bringing a sign-up sheet for demos for the rest of the year.
Right now we're good through March (and maybe April) but we'll need
volunteersto cover the rest of the year. Don't be shy, show us what
you are good at. Starting February 19th and continuing for the next four Fridays
from 8:30 AMto 10:30 AM, we will be teaching middle school students
from Omni Montessori School -the Basics of Woodturning. We be using
the facilities at Hunter House and the mini-lathes the the club owns.
We have a few primary instructors,but we could use a few more as
well as assistants to help the students at the minis.
Please check you calendars. I'll also have a sign-up sheet at the
meeting for this event. See you on the 2nd.
