SPLIT BOWL? YES! Demo by JoeGiannina July 7, 2015

Hey there Woodturners:

Our next meeting is sneaking up on us.  It will be on July 7 at 6:30 PM and, as usual, we’ll meet at Dave & Joan McKeithan’s shop in Waxhaw for a fun filled and informative demonstration by Joe Giannina.  Joe is going to show us how to create a Split Bowl.

We’ll also be having a raffle and show and tell session so bring your latest creations to show off or your spare/excess/extra/taking-up-valuable-space-and-I-don’t-know-what-to-do-with-it turning-related stuff to put in the raffle.  You’ll have our undying gratitude.

  The meeting starts at 6:30 PM but do come early for conversation with fellow turners and a cup or seven of Joan’s wonderful caffeine brew.

  Haven’t yet paid your dues for 2015? You can do so at the meeting or you can go on the WWT website (http://www.waxhawwoodturners.com/) and use PayPal (a $2.00 surcharge applies for this convenience).

  If you’ve are going to the AAW Symposium in Pittsburgh this weekend, let us know what you thought of the program, the vendors and the gallery.  Photos welcome.

  Also, if you know anyone interested in learning about woodturning, invite them along.  We do welcome visitors and potential new members.  No experience necessary. Come get creative.

Cheers and hope to see y’all on the 7th,


John Walsh

June 1, 2015 Bruce Lacy and a Rocking Box Demonstration

 Come one, come all.

  Please join us on Tuesday, June 2 for a demo, some of Joan’s world famous coffee and woodturning camaraderie.  The meeting be at Dave & Joan McKeithan’s shop in extremely rural Waxhaw and will start at 6:30 PM.  Arrive early to take in a pre-demo ‘cuppa’ as the Brits say.

Bruce Lacy will be demonstrating how to make a ‘rocking box’ — that is a box with a round bottom, sort of like the kids’ toys called Weebles.  “Weebles wobble but they don’t fall down” was the catch line.  Just like Weebles, Bruce’s Rocking Boxes wobble by they don’t tip over.

We’ll also be conducting a raffle of some woodturning related items and will have the Show-n-Tell table set up so you can show us your latest creations.

For directions to the McKeithans’ shop, please see our website http://www.waxhawwoodturners.com/p/about-us-contact-info.html

We look forward to seeing you on Tuesday.
