This following account of the events was written by Daniel, our president, in the picture below.

This past weekend on Saturday (7:45 a.m. – 6 p.m. | event time: 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. ) and Sunday (12:30 p.m. – 5:35 p.m. | event time: 12 p.m. – 5 p.m.) our Waxhaw Woodturners club took part in the Waxhaw Autumn Festival. Here are a few pictures of my work and the others with us. We had several volunteers on Saturday morning to help us set up and only three all day who turned. We had three lathes and our main purpose was to accept donations for spin tops. On Saturday, several donated but on Sunday, several just took theirs and didn't give. On Sunday, I received special requests for honey dippers so I requested a $10 donation. We all used Poplar wood which isn't good for a honey dipper because the edge can easily tear out or break off if dropped. We stood on our feet most all day and all were tired and sore on both nights and during the day.

Daniel became a honey dipper “celebrity” on Sunday.
