Stateline Woodturners
February, 2010 Meeting
Our February meeting was an all day schedule to accommodate our guest turner, Jamie Donaldson.

We had an excellent turnout, including several visitors from other clubs.

Jamie demonstrated turning various configurations of square bowls. At the lunch break, we gathered for
lunch at the Jones Center snack bar area. Following lunch, Jamie demonstrated turning another variation of
the square bowl series.

Hands-on classes were conducted at Mark Ost's shop on the following Sunday and Monday. The following
