In cleaning and organizing the shop, I find I have dozens of blanks I don't need and won't use. I'll offer these to those attending if anyone wants them.

Most are really plain but will make good practice blanks,

Our weekend together is getting closer and my shop cleaning is somewhat done. Expect a layer of dust over things if we don't get a good southerly wind one evening this week.

Bring your favorite eye protection or face shield as I plan on having hands-on time during the day. We'll work on segmenting simple blanks and how to take them to another level. We'll work on various finishing techniques. We'll do hands-on with acrylics if you want. We can do TBC turning and wet sanding acrylics

Bring your tools if you like. I can have three lathes going. You can try out any of my tools or whatever to give your own review of what you read about here.

You bring your thoughts....we'll try to accommodate. I won't do any casting or stabilizing this meeting as we covered those subjects last time.

Be sure to bring enough funds to go to a local barbecue place for lunch. My wife will be returning from Houston Saturday morning so we won't have a cook at the house.

Looking forward to you coming.

Default Meeting March 15 - Central Texas

Barbeque sounds good to me. I just went back to your Post #46 on 06/09/2013 and got the directions and map to your ponderosa.

My wife, a daughter, a grand daughter and great grand daughter are going to Georgetown that day to show my daughter's wreathes (Back Porch Wreathes).

I am trying to make it work to come up. But I am in the middle of a bathroom remodel and my darling bride wants it done. I might have to find a reason it will have to wait until next weekend.

Rick, hope to see at the next one. We have the beach house in Surf Side for 4 days this weekend. Or I would be there.

My Bride gave me the go ahead. If anyone wants to carpool from College Station area let me know I have plenty of room.

Rick,

Doesn't look like I will make it this time. Work has been keeping me very busy.

Hopefully be able to make the next one.

I'm bringing some spalted mesquite blanks and some very heavy white oak from a 400 year old tree that was struck by lighting in California. It's been drying for about 10 years. Hard as a rock.

To all that cannot make it this time....
I'm looking forward to another time where you can maybe come. I wouldn't mind if we could do something mid-September. Maybe try to get us onto a twice yearly schedule.

To those coming...
Bring your blank for the exchange and bring pens to show. Bring your questions and eye protection for hands-on time.

Bring a few dollars to go out for barbecue.

Looking forward to Saturday.
