Thumbs up

I'm in for the meeting and pizza! I'll throw out some demo ideas I'd like to see.

1. sharpening, gouges, skews and other tools
2. sanding techniques
3. finishing techniques. the usual and the unusual. Ex ~ thick or thin CA and what are the common obstacles with CA.
4. hidden clips
5. closed end turning
6. how best to use the skew on wood and acrylics
7. is anyone casting there own blanks with any amount of success
8. discussion on bulk buying. Ex ~ no one carries the Emporer kit anymore that I know of. I usually get a bulk order 1-3 times a year for some of these. Anywhere from 5-20 pens. Dayacom will fill an order but I think you need 50 kits for a minimum!!
9. cutting pen blanks from a hunk of tree. what are some methods and what is the best part on the tree to use?

There's my .02 cents.

Also need an address for the location of the meeting. Looking forward to it.

Dion I'm from Charleston. Been in TX since 1996. If you're a golfer you are in the right place. Used to drive to Myrtle in high school and cruise the strip all the time.

Have fun in SC!

I am new to turning and would like to see some techniques on using the skew. I would also like to see other items that everybody makes to sell. Maybe have a list of local names and contact email addresses in case some body needs a kit or a part that can't wait to be ordered. I will be there!
