Our August 3, Demonstration will be by Ed Pfau on a Saturn Box.
Now I assume you have no clue what a Saturn Box is. Well, you will like what Uncle Ed will demonstrate. It is unique and one of a kind. Saturn will come alive, not in the universe, but in the shop of Dave and Joan McKeithan on the First Tuesday next. Directions on the About/Directions page on this website.
Come and bring a friend. Raffle a $25 Gift Certificate from The Woodcraft Store in Matthews: tickets are only one buck. Of course you can but 25 of them and not lose a penny (very likely!).

Dwight Hartsell positioning
the butterfly -one side at a time.
This is Dwight's third demonstration to our club. He did a beautiful job again. See a few photos of the Demo and a few of his creations.
The most striking is the Butterfly reproduction on a vase. Not only is it pretty, but it is striking in it's faithful color matching.
Hope you enjoy these photos.
