    September Meeting – September 20, 2017 at 7:00PM

    This Month’s Agenda:

    Welcome by Bob Zrebeic,  President, Keystone Woodturners…brief notes of interest to all members.

    Demonstration:  Dennis Fuge

       

    Dennis Fuge started my woodturning at Pretoria Boys High school in South Africa in 1966, where, as part of his eighth grade school woodworking project he was required to turn a lamp stand. This item still stands in my workshop as a memory to those early beginnings and the start of my love for the art of woodturning. he was fortunate to have an engineering father, Harold, who built a home lathe and this allowed him to maintain an active interest until he moved to Cape Town.

    He and his family now resides in Erwinna, Pennsylvania  and  have had the good fortune of having some of the worlds best artistic wood turners demonstrate at my home and share their friendship. The sharing nature of the wood turning community is one of the true wonders of the world and I am proud to be associated with this wonderful group of humans.

    Show and Tell
    Bring in your latest turned item and tell the members about it.  Wood type, finish, and any challenges you had with the piece are of interest to us all.  We all enjoy hearing about our members’ turned items. And seeing what you’ve accompished often gives us ideas to try ourselves.

    Raffle
    Have something that you no longer need, use or that’s just cluttering up your shop or maybe your liquor cabinet?   Bring it in for the raffle!  Surely, someone will see its value just the way you once did.   Remember, the raffle provides major funding for our club with the money it raises!
