Here's a teaser....




Everyone that attends this meeting will have the opportunity to leave with a flitch of the above log(I'll have two of them on-hand, so that should be enough....it's bigger then it looks in the photo). I'll have the first log on the 'bunk' and ready.....might need a strong back for the other if it's necessary.


Demo(s):

Woodmizer LT-10 "Making Your Own"
{possibly a group photo with your flitch afterwards}

What other things would ya'll like to do/see demo'd? I do have a Jet 1220VS if someone wants to do a demo there....{I'll just need to clear out a bit of drying slabs in the garage}


It'll be fun, and I would encourage any Arkansas 'turners' or 'woodworkers' to attend!

I have heard from a few of ya'll.....don't be shy! There will be fun and food, demo's and drinks...and free wood!!!

If I happen to run out of wood with that Sweetgum Crotch, I have a fairly good sized piece of Cherry Crotch that can be sliced up pretty quick too!



Remember, if you need directions....shoot me a PM and I can give you my phone number, and then we can get you from where ever you are to here!!

It might end up being wet....watching the weather really close now, local weather showing 50%+ for wet stuff.

Needless to say, if it's raining, there will still be a meeting. But the demos may be different then what was planned...But some demo's will be done!

Weather Channel sez 20% chance rain for Sat

Just checked Weather Channel. They are saying mostly cloudy with 20% chance for rain on Saturday and 60% for Sunday. Hope they are right!

Everytime I look at the forecast for Sunday, it gets worse! 80% rain...ouch!

The mill is in the open(no roof over her yet), and I doubt anyone is wanting to stand in the rain(including me)....


So I'll use the back-up plan if it rains.
*I'll do some cleaning in the computer room, and get together a demo on HDR photography of pens. If you'd like me to run the process through on one or your pens, bottle-stoppers, or small bowl/lidded box....bring it over and we can get that done!

*John will still be doing a demo on the lathe. Closed end pen chuck I believe....




So the day won't be a complete washout! So come on over, it'll be raining and you'll just be stuck in the house anyway!!!






Scott (woohoo, more rain....just what we needed) B

Probably should have someone running around with a camera that is taking photo's 'whenever'... Cause I certainly forget to take them while things are happening!

Special thanks to John(aka Knucklefish) for bringing the pin chuck and tool rest to demo the closed end pen! The step-by-step 'tutorial'(for lack of better term) on the lathe produced a wonderful pen....one that the wife will be showing off for many years at work!


Here's a photo(or two) of the turning:







And here's the completed pen using my demo(tutorial):




I personally wanted to thank everyone that attended todays meeting...even though the original demo I was to give was rained out...it was still a great learning experience. And now I need to sit down and order some 'goodies'!

Oh no, it's a secret. :biggrin:

Actually, we never did talk about the next meeting, so I guess we need to decide when & where it will be.
