Stateline Woodturners
February 2010 4th Saturday
Meeting
Our February, 2010 4th Saturday activities were not quite as well attended
as the January gathering, but we all learned a few new techniques.

Doug Hyde demonstrated, and provided hands-on instruction in the turning
of decorative  medallions.

Harold Stoner demonstrated turning relatively large, flat lidded boxes for
holding awards, such as medals awarded for service to our country.

Kip Powers demonstrated turning a platter.

Jim King turned a small finial.

Tom Gilge provided useful information on the selection of pen making
components.

smooth out the variations in a

You must keep your tools sharp!!
Well, here goes finial number two.
