    Welcome: Doug Davis,

    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!

    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.

    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.

     

    Adjourn
