April 14, 2012 WORKSHOP by Joe Ruminski-Saturday 10-4:00PM

WORKSHOP DAY!....April 14, 2012  Excellent Worskhop with Joe Ruminski

For all the members and attenders  at the Waxhaw Woodturners, if you missed the WORKSHOP with Joe Ruminski then you will be sorry. Mr. Riminski has been with us before, and we knew he would do an excellent job.  And he certainly did.  Joe presented 10 smaller projects in a easy going pace with time for questions.

Then we broke for lunch organized by Joan McKeithan which is always planned well. Afterwards there was a great deal of hands on workshop and demo continuing.  You should have been there since we followed it up with our Famous Raffle which included the Woodcraft  $25 Gift Certificate plus some real nice wood. Great day and great bargains for learning several new projects and new techniques to be utilized whenever shop time is available.

Thanks for all the attendees. We had a real good learning time with Joe. Thanks Joe.
