We had a great meeting yesterday,lots of great food,fellowship,and demos. Delbert gave us a lot of great tips on making pens and other small items out of deer antler,Mac did a cigar pen and showed how he does his great finish,and John did a great demo on making bracelet helpers. Most of us had not considered bracelet helpers and now it looks like way may be doing a bulk order on them as everyone seemed to like them. No one went home empty handed as Ken Nelson of Kallenshaan Woods donated another batch his great laser cut blanks for door prizes. Also for door prizes John donated the braclet helper he made,Delbert donated a bullet and deer antler pen, and our host Bill donated a rack of deer antler. Those who were unable to make it missed a great time. Our last order of business was to discuss our next meeting which we have tenatively set for the 1st saturday in March. The next meeting will be at my shop in New Boston unless someone else wants to host it. Details will be posted in February.

Keep the first saturday in March open. Unless something changes that is when our next meeting will be held.

consider it marked; there is currently nothing planned that weekend, and I'm going to do my best to keep it that way.
I told Micah1_8, he's a new member here, he's going to try and make it as well.

Question: I'll probably put this in the main forums later, but - I'm looking to buy a lathe. Currently I borrow one from the high school I work at, but am about to a point where I can purchase one. Micah recently bought one at Harbor Freight, and has been pleased with it. I'm considering one of those, as well as looking at other options as well. The ones here at the high school are Jets, and I like them a lot, but for all I plan to do (currently ) - pens, brush handles, etc. - I'm looking at less expensive options.

Any suggestions?
