Here's a special thanks to Teddy, Allen & Allen's wife (seems shortimers is getting to me, I can't remember her name) for hosting our meeting yesterday. Allen kindly let us invade his man cave, and his wife cooked us lasagne for lunch along with all the fixing.

We didn't really do any demo's, but instead turned 4 tool handles for carbide tools for the VA. Because of the smaller size of the group, we all took turns shaping the tools. So each is a mixture of styles. A special thanks goes to John Austin (aka hanau here on IAP) for donating the 4 carbide tools for the VA.

Eugene gave us a tutorial on how he makes his segmented rolling pins, and displayed his rolling pens. I didn't get a picture, but I think Dave did.

We broke our rule though. WE didn't set a meeting date before we ate. We did set a place though. Ronnie Hallsell (our newest member), was nice enough to let us twist his arm into hosting the next meeting. We do need to select a date though.

Ken gave us an update on what's happening over at the VA as it relates to pen turning. They are increasing the number of lathes to 8 (3 are still on a slow boat from China). And to top it off, now the doctors at the VA are prescribing pen turning as therapy. I don't know have many tubed pen blanks were donated, but the was a good sized box.

Here are several pictures I took at the meeting.

It was a great time. We got the 4 (very custom) handles done for the turning tools for the VA hospital.

We ate some GREAT food, if you wasn't there, you missed out.

Eugene did a good job showing his rolling pins and his rolling pens.

A special thank you to Teddy for organizing this and to Allen and his wife for the hospitality and the food.
