If you have any big enough to make band saw boxes or cutting boards I would love some.

I'll take some too, what ever you bring will be fine.
I'll be turning some chess pieces(hint, hint :))
I gave away the piece of ebony i got from you to a guy making a flag case for his relative.
Lets get this going.

ok ill gather up what i can. and toss it in a box. first come first serve. i love to watch a good cat fight lol. as far as big enough for boxes. probably not. unless 1/8-1/4" is thick enough. and they would still be probably small boxes. ill see what i can do.

Looks like March 6 is the date. I'll be at the shop at 11:00 AM to open up. All are welcome. We don't have any set demos planned, but let's see what we can share.
The address is:

31 Lowell St.
West Springfield, MA 01089

There is a local Woodcraft store right down the street on Memorial Avenue which usually pretty well stocked and a great staff.

Sorry I did not show I had to prepare for the funeral for the police officer form Virgina that West Springfield hosted.

Only two people showed up. Craig (Crayman) and Matt (Metromack). We talked for a couple of hours on pen turning and techniques. We made a Celtic knot blank which I gave to Matt to turn. Hopefully it holds together for him to turn. Hopefully he will post pictures if it works out. Even though there were only three of us, I enjoyed the afternoon. Plus I got some really nice wood.

We also talked about setting up another meeting in May. I'll post another thread to get that started and hopefully with the early start we can get a lot more people interested.

Dang! I just checked out this thread for the first time in a while and I JUST missed the meeting! I would've been there! I can only blame myself for not checking in more often...

Missed the meeting too. I have been back working out of the area. I'll try to make the next one if I'm in the area.
