Mini-HAT WOKSHOP 12/5/2009

Roland Hege announced he has been able to get the principles together for the Mini Hat Workshop; It will be on Dec. 5 , 2009 So be prepared says Roland and he detailed the following:

"We will be bringing jam chucks for 1"-8 lathe spindle noses. Folks will have to bring lathes, chucks and bowl gouges. We will try to bring enough blanks. If people want to bring their own blanks, bring very green (wet, wet, wet) light colored wood. 9" diameter X about 5" long cut like bowl blanks. Also bring a portable lamp with a flexible neck."     -Roland Hege


So Please note, we need mini-Lathes. Got one? Bring it! We have 3 available in the Club Shop, but we need a number more in order to set up for all of us to be able to turn a mini hat in this Workshop. Get the scoop on some new techniques and methods by attending this seminar.

NO COST -then, the next details are probably about correct. Correction? CK here in a few days to get the complete updated scoop on the mini-hats!

Autumn Treasures October 10-11, 2009 Sat-Sunday

The Waxhaw Fall Festival-Autumn Treasures is on for Saturday and Sunday  Oct 10 & 11, 2009 and as usual we will be involved again demonstrating Woodturning. We hope to have many of our members involved again to set up, man the tent and do lots of turning for the crowd.

It is a favorite of the people attending especially the children who receive tops and a great way to show off and even sell your products. Display tables available.

Please consider being involved by emailing  Dave McKeithan with times and days that you will be available. Saturday morning setup at approx. 8:00 am with the Show opening at 10:00 until 6:00 pm. Sunday we need people from 12:00 to 5:00 pm. Help is needed and you can assist in several hour slots or for the entire event. We also need some to help clean up & load up at the end. Many hands make lite work.

Thank You for your Participation

Let’s be prompt to allow a brief business meeting to be completed so the demonstration can proceed. Raffle to follow.  See you there! With this you can become a certified Blues person.

The demonstration is making a guitar via woodturning and it sounds real good. Raymond calls it a Blues Bowl.
