President Keystone Woodturners
Brief notes of interest to all members.
No Demo this month- It’s wood auction time!!!!
Show and Tell
No Show and Tell this month- It’s wood auction time!!!!
No Raffle this month- It’s wood auction time!!!!
The regularly scheduled May meeting will be the Wood Action
Bring something that other members would want to buy, it should be good enough that it hurts a little. It should be wood – save the tools and the Scotch for the raffle! You may drop it off at the shop anytime from this next meeting to the auction day. Please label the wood species – not all of us are able to guess correctly! Cardboard and staples work well. This is the clubs major fundraiser so be generous!
Payments are accepted in:
Only active members (have you paid your dues?) can bid in the auction however we will take wood donations from anyone.
($1’s, $5’s, $10’s and $20’s please)

Lathe Shield / Library Display
Bob Zrebiec has build a lathe shield for use during our demonstrations and it will be in place this month. We have had a great safety record and the shield should help us maintain that. Besides a large plexiglass window, the shield features a shelf for display of the demonstrator’s items and also two shelves on which DVD’s and books from our Club Library will be displayed. If you see any you like you can take them home with you till our next meeting by signing them out in our Library Record Book. There is no charge for this service but please bring the items borrowed back undamaged for the next meeting so that others can borrow them. A complete list of the contents of our library can be found on our website under the Resources tab.

Community Service Project Committee update
Last month a donation was made to Cuddle My Kids www.cuddlemykids.com.
We donated last year. Below is a copy of the request for this year
Cuddle My Kids Annual Awards Dinner. This year’s Annual Awards Dinner and Reception will be held on Thursday, March 22, 2018 at The Desmond Hotel in Malvern, PA.
Your financial support in 2017 enabled us to introduce two new support programs which include:
Therapeutic Art Journaling
Cancer Comfort Kits
Your generosity has enabled us to continue to meet the needs of our families by being an effective and reliable resource for them. Most importantly, your support allows us to maintain FREE services to all families in cancer treatment. CMK helps families by increasing the QUALITY of life for parents and their children during this difficult time. We connect with them on a personal level, through personal interaction, providing a break to the chaos of cancer.
We hope you will consider supporting us with your tax-deductible donation. We will gladly accept both monetary donations and items/services to be auctioned off during our event. We greatly appreciate your generous gift of:Custom Made lathe turned Cherry Wooden Bowl ($60.00), Walnut lathe turned custom made Wooden Bowl ($75.00) at last year’s auction and would be honored by your continued support.
Below is picture of Wendy King, Event Coordinator, Cuddle My Kids and the items donated this year.

Wondering why your images aren’t displayed in the website gallery?
It is simply because you haven’t sent your pictures to Mark Hall.
The Gallery is designed to display your work. Mark Hall will be happy to create a “shelf” for your work but the images must first be sent to Mark at Mark@seaglass.us
AAW EXPLORE! STAFF PICK
In his article, “Working with Burls: Natural-edge Hollow Vessels,” by Mike Jackofsky, from the April 2012 issue of American Woodturner, Mike shares his experience-honed secrets to successfully turning burls into hollow vessels. He explains that working with burls to make hollow vessels with natural edges can be very rewarding – and be very frustrating. Mike says each piece teaches him something new. This article explains Mike’s process from mounting and turning between centers through drying and finishing.
