March 2018 Meeting Review
Gary Weeks, Secretary

Kevin Kirlin called the meeting to order at 7 PM introducing guests and new members.

A leader is needed for the Toy SIG. Ron Vander Meyden has done a great job but would like to step down. We also need a volunteer to purchase the door prizes for the meeting.

John Twedt announced that Artistry in Wood will be held April 28-29. Please plan to bring projects. The rules will be the same as last year. 2x4 projects are encouraged.

Ron Vander Meyden reported that 335 toys were given to four agencies this month with total number given of 9,873. Ron will be stepping down as the leader of the Toy SIG at the end of May. We need someone to volunteer for this leadership position if this Special Interest Group will continue and provide toys.

Eugene Harms has agreed to assume the duties of Librarian. He asked that club members return items that have checked out from the library. He will inventory existing items and cull outdated material.

Tom Brumback reported on the two classes held this past month, saw horses by Bob Scott and hand tool tune-up by Peter Kasper.

The Swap Meet will be held April 21st in the back of the Woodsmith Store.

The program was presented by Sabrina Lowery from Tandy Leather on how to combine wood and leather into projects and the different uses of dyes. She brought different types of leather and explained the benefits of using certain types of leather for a particular project use. Sabrina also showed how leather dyes can also be used on wood.

Three members shared their projects with the club

  • Craig Ruegsegger built a Bandsaw Box
  • Ed Sharr built a Stool
  • Tom Whalley a Toy Bulldozer.
