February 3, 2015 Demonstrator Confirmed!

Hello Waxhaw Woodturners!

My how time flies!  It seems as if only a month ago I was writing to pass along info about the January meeting … wait!  It was a month ago ; >)  (Poor attempt at humor, I know.  Give the poor guy a chance.)

Unfortunately, I am unable to do any turning or play with sharp instruments for a while due to the medications I am now taking, so I will not be demonstrating the faux segmented pen I was going do in January.  Fortunately, Ed Trevillian has stepped up and has agreed to do the demo this month.  Ed will be demonstrating how to turn a clamshell clock and thermometer desk set.  Photos of one of Ed’s turnings will be available on the web site shortly.

Our meeting will start at 6:30 PM at Dave and Joan McKeithan’s shop deep in the woods of Waxhaw.  Come early and enjoy Joan’s skillfully brewed coffee and chat with your fellow turners.

If you have anything you would like to donate to the raffle, please bring it along.  We’ll be happy to raffle off your extra wood, tools or anything else turning related.

Bring along some of your latest turnings to show off during the Show-N-Tell portion of the meeting.  And, if you have unique tools or other items for sale, bring them along too; someone may be interested in buying them from you.

If you know of anyone who may be interested in woodturning — or learning about woodturning — invite them to join you at the meeting.  Guests and potential new members are always welcome.

See you on the Third!

John Walsh
President, Waxhaw Woodturners
