Meeting Reviews

March 2019 Meeting Review
Gary Weeks, Secretary

Meeting was called to order by President Chuck Haas. Librarian Eugene Harms reported that the library usage was increasing. Donations of books and magazines were always welcomed; however duplicates would be put out for members to take.

John Twedt reminded members that the furniture building SIG meeting is this Saturday. The topic will be a Norwegian Tine Box. There is still time to sign up for the spring classes. Please go to the website to see topics and times.

The program was presented by John Twedt on the different ways to bend wood. Some of the ways he demonstrated included: steamed wood bending, laminated glue bending, hot water wood soaked bending, bending moist wood around a hot pipe, and using an iron to adhere veneer to a curved shape. John also described his process for building the form that works for the different shapes.

Show and tell participants this month were Butch McClintic who shared his Step Stool. John Twedt showed the Norwegian tine box that will be the topic for the furniture building SIG meeting. Lynn Clark shared his shrine clowns display and Tom Whalley presented a turned bowl sliced on the bandsaw.
