Default Fall Meeting - 2014 (October 26th)

Please use this thread to discuss the Fall meeting of the Michigan Chapter of the IAP.

The meeting will be on Sunday, October 26th at Fischer's house (6007 Justine, Belleville, MI 48111)

We will start at the usual time ... 1:00 for newbies (free tutorial), 1:30 for the regular meeting.

The posts in this thread should discuss demonstrations (what you want to see and/or what you would like to demonstrate); meeting logistics (who's bringing what refreshment, etc.); and those of you from the far east side might want to figure out some ride sharing.

Default First couple of topics ...

  1. At the business portion of the meeting we will need to remember to confirm the 2015 schedule.
  2. The Winter 2015 meeting is already on the calendar ... but we don't yet have a location.
  3. At the Summer Meeting, it was suggested that Christmas Ornaments be the topic of a demonstration for the October meeting (just in time for making those hand crafted Christmas gifts). The current thinking is one demonstration on the hollow ball (ornament) and a separate demonstration for a matching finial.
  4. HOWEVER ... this was just a suggestion from those present at the meeting. We need to discuss other ideas with the larger (online) group ... what would you like to see and/or volunteer to demonstrate?

OK ... let's start discussing ...

Default Fall meeting

Do we bring anything to the meeting? Is it mostly discussion and demo? I plan to come to the next meeting just want to make sure I've got anything that's necessary with me. Sounds fun!

I see you found the forum ...

What to bring? We encourage people to bring a pen and non-pen project for show-and-tell. The better show-and-tell discussions happen when you bring something that didn't turn out so well ... you'll get 2N pieces of advice on how to fix it (where N is the number of people in attendance).

Looking forward to meeting you.

Jim

I don't know if it was one of your blanks, but I did take a blank from the table. I'll promise to make a pen out of it (just in case it is yours) and use it for show and tell.

Default Call for Demo Volunteer

So far, for the fall meeting, there is a suggestion to demonstrate how to make hollow Christmas ornaments. This would be just in time for the Christmas Holiday. The thinking is to have one demonstration for the hollow ball portion of the ornament, and a second demonstration for the finial. Here's a couple of additional thoughts.
  • We don't have to stick with this plan. If there is something else you would like to see, now is the time to say something.
  • I need a volunteer for these two demonstrations.
  • I'd prefer to have two volunteers, just to get more people involved.
  • You don't need to do the entire ornament in the demo. Having some partially complete (and a completed) ornament is allowed ... maybe even recommended.
  • You'll have access to a Rikon midi-lathe. I have skews, scrapers and the like, but I don't have any hollowing tools (you'd likely want to use your own tools anyway).
