A NEW YEAR of CHIPMAKING- January 3, 2012 Hege Inspires!

We will begin our January 3 2012 demo with Roland Hege making tools. Roland will show us his skills at turning the handle, then making the actual metal tool and connecting to the handle. We will discuss different metals and heat treating.

Don't forget to bring a piece you made, and the Famous Raffle where you can win all kinds of things like a $25 Gift Certificate to the Woodcraft Store  in Matthews. Usually you will find some very nice blanks to do some serious turning. If you have an extra piece bring it along to share -maybe to turn a beautiful handle for that next special tool someone needs.

Where: The McKeithan Workshop, 7105 Steele Road, off NC Rt 200 (between Davis Road and Old Providence Road)

Need help? Call President John Skinner  704-882-1650, or  Secy/Treasurer: Dave Powless 704-506-0403

Well, now Roland, that just beats me. Why are you doing that when I'm in Florida??  Goes to show who make the decisions around here and leave me out again.

Oh well, I'll let you folks have a grand time while we are sweating it out visiting the beach inspecting sand sculptures.

..and you can see the demise of the runner up-they blew it up.
