Whatever works best for you and the most members.Mannie, If April 28 is too soon and may 29 is not good, I'm good with May 26th. Just a lil warmer, but doable.
Hey Brenda,This is a technical question. I made a pen out of amboyna a few months ago. I noticed a few days ago, that there is a thin, cloudy, white milky looking ring around it. It has a CA glue finish on it. Any ideas what could have caused this? Or, how to prevent it from happening again? This ring is thin, but quite noticable. I cant sell it. I have only been using CA for about a year now. I havent had this problem before. I need help from you much more expieirenced pen turners. Thanks. Brenda Witte
Don't know if Clyde will be there or not. He hasn't been on IAP since late December. I can do a Cactus Juice demo if someone has an extra toaster oven they can bring. Mine finally broke a few months ago and I've upgraded to a used (free) full sized electric kitchen oven someone was throwing out. It's a little too big to bring.One week till the Spring Greater Houston Gathering May 26th
