The guild members donated 26 items to the Safe Passages silent auction in conjunction with the Mendocino Coast Furnituremakers at the Odd Fellows Hall in Mendocino. Buy Now prices and minimum bids were added to the items. Next year, members should add their own minimum bid and buy now prices. Since some items may need to be shipped, the Guild voted to pay for the shipping costs so that all funds generated by the auction will go to Safe Passage.
The demo was given by Russ and Lee on embellishment to enhance the appearance of turned objects. Examples are shown in the previous four pictures.
A rotary texture tool, chatter tool, wood burning pin, high speed dental grinder and a high speed rotary tool can all be used for embellishment.
