April 2019

Welcome: Doug Davis,
President Keystone Woodturners
Brief notes of interest to all members.

Colonial Plantation bowls are due at the May meeting (See below).

We need more suggestions for tip topics, both from newer turners and especially from older turners who often know things that newer turners dont even know they need to learn. Fill out a form at the meeting (from Tom Sell)  or email Doug at dougmdavis@aol.com.

The ‘Tip of the month’ will be Sketching. If you can’t draw a straight line ,good!
This months demo will be Bob Zrebiec – Segmented Beads of Courage boxes.

Next month (May) is the anual wood auction. Start looking for suitable wood to donate. Dont give us your rejects, give us something that hurts a little! This is our biggest fund raiser of the year. Bring your wood to Joes any time up to the auction, but dont be late!
Our meeting will be nothing but auction!

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 accomplished often gives the rest of us ideas to try as well.


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.
