I would like to thank Ray Nelson for the presentation that he made last spring. Ray spoke of techniques that I am not familiar with and spurred a lot of discussion. I think that everyone learned something new from Ray.

The September meeting of the Saturday Morning Furniture Makers Group will be presented by me, John Twedt. I built a clock with the intent to show off some maple that I bought at the Habitat for Humanity store. The piece did very well at the State Fair. I hope that you looked at the piece and thought that it looked complicated, it was.

 I intend to bring all that I have concerning the jigs I used and talk about the construction. I am sure that you will get new information out of the discussion. I also intend to bring 4 of the things that I depend on to make dovetail joints. It won’t be a complete talk concerning all of the step by step processes, but it will get you started on the right foot.

Join us at The Woodsmith Store on the 17th of September, 9:30 AM.

-John Twedt, Furniture SIG Chair
