Default One month to go ...

The October 26th meeting will be here before we know it.

If you are reading this post and didn't get an email reminder (sent 9/26 at about 9:15 am) and would like to receive email reminders, let me know and I'll add you to the distribution list.

The meeting will be at Jim Fischer's (that's me) house at 6007 Justine St., Belleville, MI 48111, starting at 1:00 for newbies (free tutorial) and 1:30 for the regular meeting.

I've been doing some work on my shop and will have plenty for our show-n-tell segment. Everyone else needs to BRING A SHOW-N-TELL ITEM.

The planned demos are: A) shaping and hollowing the ball for a Christmas Tree Ornament; and B) the making of a finial for that same ornament.

The demonstrator can (if they would like) prepare a couple if partially complete pieces for the sake of discussion, or (if they can take the pressure) turn the whole thing start to finish during the demo.

PROBLEM: I need one or two people to demonstrate. Please volunteer if you've made ornaments in the past.

Pretty soon we'll be looking for volunteers to bring snacks and such ... I usually make some chili, is that OK with everyone? Or would you like something else?

Talk/type to you soon.

Jim

Unfortunately I do not think I will be able to attend the meeting. I have some health issues that have kept me pritty much tethered to the house with occasional visits to the Dr. office or the hospital. I most likely have a operation in my future and recovery time to follow. Will miss you all.

Default Bummer ...

Bummer on your health issues. I hope it isn't too serious. If there's anything you need me/us to do, let us know.

Bummer on your absence, but I guess you have a good enough excuse.

Keep us posted ...

Jim

Jim,

I will not be able to attend either as my wife has me working on our new lake house near Tawas. I have missed a bunch of meetings, but keep me on the list and I will try to make one soon.

Tawas ?!?!?!

Lake House !?!?!?!

Do you think we could have a week long pen meeting at your place next summer during peak fishing season? How many does it sleep? Bob will bring some cookies and I'll bring some fishing poles. Let us know.

Default I'm back...

I've been out of town for the past week attending a niece's wedding. The wedding was in Tennessee, so my wife and I spent a few days in the Smoky Mntns.

The recent posts are all bummers. Too bad those guys can't make it. We need to hear from those that will be attending so we can estimate food, etc. Also, its time people sign up to bring soft drinks, snacks, etc.

Still looking for that special someone who can demonstrate hollow ornaments and finials.

Other topics that I'll go over are:
  1. Recent upgrades to my shop (helpful hints on a dust collection system)
  2. The build process for end grain cutting boards.
  3. The build process for bowls that aren't round (no lathe involved).

Other topics to discuss will be:
  • The 2015 schedule
  • Changes in roles and responsibilities
There's still time to request topics (maybe someone will know of, and will demonstrate whatever topic in which you're interested).
