Plan on what pieces you want to bring to the next meeting for the "instant gallery." It's a perfect time to share your work with other club members. And if you find something of interest in the instant gallery, take the time to ask the maker about it may be about how it was constructed, techniques used, or finishing. It's time to share our thoughts with others. Anyone with donations (e.g. tools, machinery, library books or videos) see any one of the committee members.
