Show & Tell


Phil Bishop: Had some information on club members helping at and entering items in a high-end arts and craft shop in Lynchburg.


Jim Van Cleave: Jim has been carving and brought some examples of his work.


Billy May: A couple of rams caught just before they butt heads.  Made out of buckeye.


Tim Halbeck:  He has taken lessons from VanCleave and brought in some pieces of a cherry pencil post bed that is in progress.  He also brought in the beginnings of a carving that is going on a cherry box.  And a butternut block that has a bass in it, he just needs to let it out.  Will it be a large or small mouth?


Walter Clement: Parts and pictures of a fireplace mantel he built for a friend. 


Ross Roepke: 4 small boxes of varying degrees of difficulty.  These are some examples of the types of boxes that he will demonstrate at his workshop.


Henry Davis: 3 apple bowls that were turned at Tom Church's demonstration.  Also a poplar saucer.


Tom Gillard: Mold for making a fiberglass part.  Put together like making a canoe, using strips and gluing them to a frame to make the shape.


The Tote-Box group: What a good looking group,   of boxes.  Everyone had a good time and ended up with a useful project.


Ben Whiteaker: Large and small clock. 


We took a short break and ate cookies and cake, furnished by the Clarks.  Don Helton presented a program on how simple it is to do scroll and fret work.  "Just like driving a car", he says. 

Thanks Don.


Meeting adjourned after 9:00pm.
