February 12th, 2019 General Meeting:

At our meeting February 12th, Kevin Boyle of WOOD Magazine will present a program on veneering furniture projects.  Kevin will demonstrate how to make a simple (but beautiful) book-matched veneer panel. He is an excellent instructor,who offers practical solutions to veneering problems and "demystifies" the process.  We look forward to Kevin's presentation.
