SHOW AND TELL:

He also showed the various stages of construction of the “equipment box”, used to house the equipment. Henry stated that training sessions are being planned concerning the operation/use of the club equipment.
Bob Leonard brought and discussed a piece of a Post Oak tree that he estimated to be 300 years old. The tree, which was 32 inches in diameter, was cut from AEDC property.
Ross Roepke brought the spalted maple veneer that he made during the latest shop tours. He also showed a piece of mahogany veneer that he glued to a backing board.
Ken Gould brought a small frog carving. He also brought some “segmented” trash cart wheels. He discussed the restoration work he had done on an old chest (built in 1945).
John Mayberry brought his finished maple and cherry segmented vase. The vase was designed and built, as a result of Loyd’s workshop.
David Whyte brought and donated an 8” dado blade to the club to be used in an auction later in the year.
Tom Gillard gave a slide presentation of a wind tunnel section that he is building in his shop. The project is too large to bring to “show & tell”.

for a friend. The frame was made from mahogany.
