Offcuts from the Board
As woodturners, we do not have much scrap, just smaller pieces that can be used together to make something larger in combination with other bits and pieces. That's what this little section attempts to produce. By adding the small parts of our activities and plans we have a combined bigger picture of opportunities to take part in within the club.
- Please take note of the changes to the Open Shop schedule. Please refer to the Open Shop section of this newsletter.
- The demo challenge this month will be to turn a practice piece. It should be just off the lathe with no sanding or finish.
- Be sure to check out our new website. The address is; independencewoodturners.org (Ref. the following article on the website.)
- Once again this summer we will be going out to the church camp, Tomah Shinga, at Junction City, Kansas and helping teen aged kids to turn a pen. If you would like to help out by either going with us or helping prepare the pen kits or donate, please contact one of the officers or Mike McReynolds.
- Be on the lookout for a brief questionaire/survey to come in your email. Please take a moment and fill it out and return it. We are trying to improve our club and want to know what you would like to see and for us to consider. Thank you very much in advance.
- There are many ways you can contribute to the life of our club. A really good way is to partake in the Open Shop by bringing a project or turning and get a lathe going. Another way is to submit your woodturning tips also for the newsletter. (Refer to the article later.) Of course there are many other ways to put your enthusiasm into action. You can ask any officer for direction. There are many practical ways to be involved. A simple way to help is to come early to the meeting and help set up the room for the meeting and/or stay afterwards and help clean up. Either or both are appreciated.
Keep turning safely and we’ll see you at the meeting.
