I think it's bedtime! When I read that title I thought it was a wood from the Orient that I hadn't heard of yet! :confused: :redface::):yawn:

I won't hold anyone to it if I don't have a great time, but do you think it would be worth the drive from vancouver (wa)?

IMHO: OF COURSE IT WOULD BE WORTH THE DRIVE. I know I'm a bit KRAZY but I have driven 3 hours (each way) to attend a chapter meeting, when I lived down south.

Displaced Canadian said:
If you are completely new to pen turning I would say that you would learn more in that afternoon than you would learn in 6 months on your own.
Well in that case, I hope very much that I will be able to go that day. Have to check with the wife about her work schedule.

The events???
o.k. I'm thinking if Caden can do the demo for the celtic knot then have Craig finish it with the CA Finish.
We can also bring our latest turnings, and any thing to trade, and some type of munchie stuff (cookies, soda)
What say ye??

It's almost time.
Caden is going to demo a celtic knot. Our host shop has a lathe and a chop saw we can use. After the perfect celtic knot pen is turned Craig is going to apply an expert CA finish. I'll bring the camera and try to capture the demos and share it with those who can't be there.
Joe, bring your tools that you have quesitons about sharpening. We will see what advice we can give you and if our host will allow us access to their sharpening area.
If you want to bring some munchies please do. Of course bring the latest turnings to brag about.
It's going to be a fantastic event.

Rockler is moving their store 2 doors down in the same building in Tukwila. It will be a larger space meaning more stuff for us to buy.

Hi all;
here are a few of the photos I have from the October meeting. Sorry this has taken so long to get posted. I've been on the road Tues. - Friday the past month. I know no excuse. More photos coming when I can get them resized...





Using a chop Saw Chris makes the cuts for the pick guard material.



Chris shares his tricks and tips with the group.




Caden shows the way to NOT use a drill while trying to square the pen blank.




Caden is a master with the Skew. However, we all told him he needs a NEW one.




The Celtic Knot begins to take shape

yes, i have photos of Craig and his CA finish, but they are giving me fits trying to resize them.
coming soon...

THANKS EVERYONE for a great Meeting.

I would love to come to this!! I am on the other side of the mountains in beautiful, sunny, who the hell am I kidding... I live in Yakima. However, due to all the trauma call I am currently taking I am going to have to say I cannot come. ;(

Edit.. it seems I didn't pay attention to the date given and have replied nearly a whole month late. :)
