|March, 2009 4th Saturday
Actually, our March "4th Saturday" meeting was held on April 7, due to
inclement weather on March 28th!
We had a great crowd, the largest yet!
David Strickland demonstrated deep hollowing, Mark Ost demonstrated
(and provided hands on instruction) in cutting threads, Doug Hyde
demonstrated some spindle turning, Tom Gilge demonstrated pen and
magnifying glass handle turning and Jim King provided tool sharpening
All-in-all, it was an interesting and busy session!
These 4th Saturday sessions are proving to be more and more popular,
not only for current club members, but especially for guests and
prospective new members! Again, our thanks to Mark Ost and Doug Hyde
for their boundless efforts in making this a successful and enjoyable club
Also, thanks again to Leo Hapeman and Jerry Crowe for contributing wood
to the club! (And to Mark and Dee for picking up the wood from Jerry's)
