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.
Meeting adjourned after 9:00pm.
Respectfully submitted by Tom Gillard.
