July, 2015 Meeting
We were fortunate to have Mr. Delbert Dowdy of Wake Village, Texas as our guest
demonstrator for our July, 2015 meeting. Delbert demonstrated how to make a high quality,
very accurate sled for cutting wood pieces for segmented projects; how to rapidly and
precisely assemble the pieces of wood into segmented rings; accurately flatten the rings,
and assemble them into a finished piece! He then demonstrated how to make a spatula out
of several pieces of wood to form an attractive pattern.
The demonstrations lasted all day, and we had a very short business meeting. There was
not a "Show & Tell" due to the extended meeting schedule. Members are reminded to bring
their "Bring Back Auction" items to our August meeting.
The Woodcarvers of NWA will have their annual show on September 12 and 13 at the Frisco
Station Mall. We will have a table, and members are encouraged to participate.
Pictures of portions of the meeting demonstration are shown below.
