This is a reminder of the IAP Penturners meeting Thursday 12/20/12 at the Woodcraft store off Pleasant Valley Rd in Raleigh. The meeting time is 6:30pm.
Feel free to bring a friend. The meeting will be a chance for attendees to discuss tips, tricks and techniques with other turners.
Bring a few of your pens or other turnings to share with the group.

No matter what your skill level is everyone will either learn something new or be able to contribute!

Continuing with the topic of preparing a blank for your pen
· Reverse painting - why is this needed
· Impact on the acrylic blank with different colors
· Squaring the ends of the blank - discussions on your process and what others options you may have
· Turning the blank once the tube is in place - options include mandrel or between centers

Anyone interested in doing a demo, please let me know prior to the meeting.

Mark your calendars for the next few meetings on the third Thursday of the month:
January 17, 2013
February 21, 2013

Future topics:
Handouts for tips and tricks - when possible
Pen platting materials and inserts
Decal application
Segmenting blanks
Stabilizing blanks
Casting resin blanks

January Meeting - Raleigh IAP

Due to inclement weather expected in the area, and the fact that the one snow plow may be busy else where in the city, the Raleigh meeting for tonight is being cancelled. It's unknown how the weather is expected to change this evening. So this is the chance for you to stay at home and work on your turning techniques before the next meeting on February 21.
