DEMO! Sept 5 at the Hunter House -6:30 pm

"Well, hello my friends."  That's how our guest last month, Al Furtado, begins all his YT videos.  I thought it fitting to use it here this month. (Hope you don't mind, Al.)

Our September meeting is scheduled for 6:30 PM on Tuesday, September 5 at Hunter House* in Weddington, NC.  Come early to discuss your ideas with other turners.

This month's meeting will feature Bill McGuiness and bowl turning techniques.  Bill  is a seasoned turner who teaches bowl turning, among other things, at the Woodcraft location in Matthews.  Please join us for an evening of tips and tricks and the art of bowl turning.

As usual, we will be holding a raffle for woodturning-related items.  If you have anything related to turning cluttering your shop and gathering dust, donate it to the raffle.  For each item you donate, you will receive one free raffle ticket (up to three items).  Spare wood is also good for raffle donations.  

We'll also have a show-n-tell session so bring you latest creations to share with everyone and let us know how you turned them.  

We are still accepting Beads of Courage box donations.  If you have made any, bring them to the meeting and we will make sure we get them to the kids at Hemby Children's Hospital.  If you are unfamiliar with the program, just make a lidded box/bowl about 5 " in diameter (or larger) by about 3-4" tall.  We have the special beads you'll need to complete the bowl.

Keep in mind the NC Woodturning Symposium is rapidly approaching (Nov 3-5) and we still need volunteers to help with the demo room we are responsible for.  We'll have sign-up sheets available at the meeting.

Hope to see y'all on the 5th.

Well, McGuniess may not do this but his expertise will be evident. 
Come and See!
