Furniture Making SIG : September 2019

The Saturday Morning Furniture Makers Group meets the Saturday after the general Club meeting at 9:30 AM at the Woodsmith Store.

Feel free to attend and learn about the group participant’s latest wood- working project design and construction topics.

From John Twedt, Furniture SIG Chair:

I received an award for Parquetry at the Iowa State Fair, I will bring that piece to this meeting to talk about. I will be giving a presentation on Parquetry for the Ames Woodworkers and I thought that I could make the same presentation for the Saturday Morning Furniture Makers Group for the September meeting.

I will be going over some of the same topics as the presenter discussed during the DMWWA's spring program. I will have better solutions for dealing with veneers. Please join us on the 14th of September at the Woodsmith Store, 9:30 AM.
