I can do a demo on my CA finish if you want.
Can also do a demo on seam rippers! These are fast and easy, and sell at shows.

Should we start a new thread for attendance, what we will bring, etc. ??
As for food bring what you want, I have tried in the past to get a list but so many of our members do not post.

Bring anything you want too to sell.

I would love to see your CA finish demo and if you want to do seam rippers that sounds good too.

I don't think it would do any good to start another thread for our bunch.


Maybe Traderdon55 will ,when he emails ,try to get a head count in a return email and post. Cause I don't know how many roads ,I will need to drive down to find enougth meat to cook.

Also Traderdon55 has some more info on some other demos.

A lot of our members are lurkers and don't like to post. Many of them don't even let us know they are coming until they arrive. At the last meeting we only had 12 people confirmed and we ended up with 25 in attendance. As of right now we only have 7 confirmed but there are several I know that will be there that have not confirmed yet. As far as demos Roger is doing kaleidoscopes, I am doing making custom centerbands, it looks like John is doing seam rippers & his method of a CA finish, and Mac is just waiting to see what people would like to see before he decides what to do. Anyone that would like to do a demo is welcome to do so, just let us know what you want to do so that we can put you on the schedule. It would be nice if everyone would post what they are bringing for the pot luck so as to avoid a lot of duplication. Every one that has let us know they are coming will recieve an e-mail with directions later this week. I hope to see everyone saturday.

This will be a 2 to 2 1/2 hour drive for me. I subscribed to the thread and will do my best to come.

This will only be my 2nd attending of a chapter meeting. The door prizes is like a swap type deal? I will confirm what I can bring as far as food and stuff. Maybe there is a place to grab some donuts or stuff on the way....

Door prizes are just items that people donate to be given away. We will have a seperate table for things people want to swap or sell. We will also have a seperate table for people to display work they have made. Please send me your e-mail address so that I will have it to send directions out on thursday. I look forward to meeting you.

I have been recieving several e-mails from different members and everything is starting to come together. Confirmed food so far is John Carlisle- deviled eggs, John Mercy-salad, Bill-dessert, Mac-tea & some type of meat, and my wife is going to fix and pot of purple hull peas and cornbread. That is all I have at the present time. I will add updates as I recieve them.

Wish I could make it, have too many things scheduled for the 16th that can't be changed.

Just wanted to let you know I will be bring a bunch of stuff for sale. I have wood blanks, acrylic blanks, pre-drilled and rounded corain, pre-drilled acrylics, etc. Will also have slimline kits, pens and pencils, key ring kits, plumb-bob carpenter kits, misc. kits, and boxes of many styles.

I will have this a good prices. I bought out all the supplies of another penturner and more than I will ever use, so time to thin the inventory.

I will offer to the club before I put it on IAP and ebay.
See you then.

Default Skew sharpening

Thanks Mac for the skew sharpening lesson. I now have a very nice and sharp round nose skew. I also modified another skew I did not use very much and now have two round nose skews that are easy to sharpen.

Enjoyed the meeting, thanks for all the hospitality.

I'd like to express my thanks for the meeting and the hospitality. Thanks to Mac for hosting! And thanks to Don for inviting me to the meeting. It never crossed my mind to attend a meeting farther away, but I do think I will be attending more. I appreciate all the help received at the meeting. Thanks to all who did demos, I learned quite a bit.
