July 2008 4th Saturday Meeting
Our 4th Saturday activities took place at Mark Ost's shop in Pineville
on the 26th of July.
Doug Hyde demonstrated turning an emery box pin cushion.
Mick Hutchinson provided instruction on turning of finials.
Jim King demonstrated use of the "ElbowTool" hollowing system, and
a homemade vacuum chuck.
Dave Strickland demonstrated wood dying and the use of a vacuum
chuck for finish turning.
Dee Schroeder was present to offer his advice and competent
instruction, as usual.
Turnout was excellent, with approximately 23 people in attendance. It
seemed that there was something for everyone, and all attendees
participated to some extent, notwithstanding the oppressive heat and
humidity that this July day in Missouri handed us!
Pictures of the activities are lacking due to my inability to remember to
bring Mark the memory sticks for his camera that I use to post the
pictures on our web site! My sincere apologies.
