It was a great meeting on Saturday and I really enjoyed it.
Thanks to Woodzone for hosting the event.
Thanks for inviting me and meeting some great folks. It was great to put some faces to the people I have been doing business for a while now.

Keep up the good work.

Well, you weren't there, but your glue was and it got a heavy plug.

Thanks again Constant for making yourself available! I really enjoyed and appreciate all your hard work! Hans, thanks for helping set everything up and for showing everyone a solid method for turning Constant's blanks. Monty...you did get a HEAVY plug. Sorry you missed it, would have been awesome to meet you!

We had a GREAT Carolina Penturner's meeting on Aug 7th. I haven't stopped thinking about all the tips and techniques that Constant Laubscher shared with us. and what a treat to have him with us! Constant shared a little about himself and how he started his business. He explained the process he used in producing his beautiful laser cut pen inlays along with how he stablizes and colors the wood he uses. We learned his method for CA finishes and tips on turning his laser inlay kits
Additinally Hans demonstrated using the eagle inlay kit how to put it togather, mount it on the mandrel, and apply a CA finish.
Our "Show N' Tell" was also most informative as Johnathan & Shea Brooks shared some of their new pen blank casting creations (which had folks waiting in a line to buy them) and a couple of gorgious custom pens they had modified. Hans Wunch also presented several of his new pen creations and explained some modifications he had made to make his pens a little more special.
We had lots of door prises from WoodZone Constant and Bob, one new member and eight guest. Member, Bob Stroughton from Charlotte.NC came bearing more give-a-ways for our club and has started our Library with a gift of four Pencrafting DVD's. Below are a few pictures taken at this meeting. And DON'T FORGET... our next meeting is the 1st Saturday in September the 4th and it is my birthday, so please plan to come and celebrate it with me.
