President's Message

May 2017

Fellow Desert Woodcrafters,

Fellow Woodcrafters,

Please note that the next meeting Desert Woodcrafters meeting is on Saturday.

Date: 6 May
Time: 9-Noon
Location: Flowing Wells High School Auto Shop

Unfortunately, I will not be there because Will Pena has planned a very special demonstration. The details are in the email below. (Darn it all, I will be missing an opportunity to be on YouTube (☺)). This is a good opportunity to get some interest generated in the Desert Woodcrafters. Will’s guest plan to video the meeting and presentation for their YouTube show. Please welcome and support Will’s/our guest as always. Please take time to view some of their videos. The Link to the YouTube page is provided in Will’s email below.

The President’s Choice for May is a Wood Sculpture. Gene Rittenhouse demonstrated shaping with sanding disks and belts. This is the basis for the President’s choice for May.

Vice President Spencer Davis will lead the Business Meeting. We plan to keep the business meeting brief to allow more time for the demonstration.

I hope you all enjoy the May meeting and I will see you at the June meeting.

Terry Glover
2016 Desert Woodcrafters President

 

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.
