July Gallery Challenge
"Thin to win", "Thin is in", "The thinner the better"! What's with all this thin stuff? Being a husky for most of my life I just don't get it. Any way, July's Presidents Challenge is THIN. So remember to bring a THIN piece for the instant gallery.
Heritage Society Ornament Demo
Come a little early to our May meeting (6:30 - 6:55) for a demonstration on creating the 2016 Lisle Heritage Society Ornament. This is the 35th annual ornament and the Windy City Woodturners will be turnin out 150 plus blanks for the society to decorate and sell at society events! Join in the fun and turn a few!
Bring the Hammer Down Challenge
It’s on! No rules, just fun! Turn a gavel for the April Instant Gallery. Turn it traditional, contemporary, mini, jumbo, segmented or just plain outside the box.
The challenge is inspired by our Club Gavel turned in 1998 by Dick Sing and my memories of woodshop. The gavel is such a traditional spindle turning project. Often included in vocational lathe training, the work is a great example of beads, coves and tool control.
If you missed the meeting, have questions or want plan drawings let me know.
Bring your “A” game!
