Default July 2016 Meeting

Hey there, penturners. It’s time once again for a get together for some more pen turning demos and discussions. We’ll meet at Hunter House (13428 Providence Road, Weddington*, NC) at 6:30 PM on Thursday, July 14. Look for the red sign (CPPG MEETS HERE) between the driveways. Come early and have a chat with fellow turners.

We’ll be doing a show-n-tell so bring your latest pen creations and share the stories of their creation. We’ll also hold a raffle including a Woodcraft gift card. If you have anything related to pen turning - or turning in general - you’d like to donate to the raffle, please bring it along. Tickets are $1.00 each or 6 for $5. If you donate items to the raffle, we’ll give you an extra ticket free for each item up to three you donate.

This month the highlights will include a quick demonstration of how one of the small, inexpensive Chinese laser engravers (see the attached photo) work on pen barrels and a demo of using up “laser leftovers”.

When I was in Atlanta last month for the AAW symposium, I had a discussion with Ken Nelson of Kaalenshan Woods (the laser inlay folks) about his laser leftovers. These are the barrels that are left over after he has cut out the little hearts, shamrocks, skulls and whatnot that go into his laser kits. The process is really simple and produces some rather interesting blanks.
