Hello Woodturners! June 5 at 6:30 is Almost Here

  Hello Woodturners!  
 It’s almost time for our next meeting.  We will meet at Hunter House (13428 Providence Rd., Weddington) on Tuesday, June 5 at 6:30 PM. Come early and enjoy the camaraderie of other turners and share your stories of woodturning successes.  Our program this month features Moe Gingerich who will show us how to make a stemmed goblet with captive rings.  Moe is an excellent turner and exceptional teacher and his demonstration should be one you won’t want to miss.

  We will, of course, hold our usual raffle of turning-related items.  Tickets are $!.00 each or six for $5.00.  If you have items to donate to the raffle, please bring them to the meeting.  For each item (up to three) you donate, we will gift you with one free raffle ticket. 

  For the show-n-Tell portion of the meeting, please bring in your latest turnings to show off and tell us about the process you used to turn and finish your object d’art.  This is also a great time to bring in those difficult items that gave you some headaches; the gathered assembly should have some answers to your turning woes.

  Don’t forget to bring in any Beads of Courage bowls you may have completed this past month.  The staff at Hemby Children’s Hospital was very appreciative of our last donation of  almost 20 bowls and we want to make sure we have a steady flow of BoC bowls for the kids going through surgeries and procedures.

  Last month Gary Janes showed us how to make a Bird’s Mouth bowl.  Did you accept the challenge to make one?  If you did, bring it in to share your experience with the other turners.
