Agenda for the day:

This will be an all day turning event.  Hopefully members will remember to bring lathes for use and demonstration.  The shop should be able to accommodate at least 5 or 6 lathes.  There are three lathes in the shop now A 20” Woodfast long bed, and two Jet minis.  We need enough coaches willing to help those less skilled.  Bring your tools.  This will be an opportunity to hone your skills and your techniques.  Come to watch and come to participate.  This will be an opportunity for members to watch, turn, ask for help, and offer help to others.

This may also be an opportunity to turn something for Safe Passage.  Deadline for donated items is July 5th.

BRING YOUR FACE SHIELDS, SAFETY GLASSES, EAR PLUGS and above all your common sense.  We want this to be a SAFE DAY.  If it looks dangerous, it probably is dangerous.

If there are any special requests please email either Lee or Russ and we will try to include them.  There will be a short meeting sometime during the day.

This is a “bring your own lunch meeting.”

Russ and Kathy will provide Coffee.  If others want to bring goodies, please do so.  Woodturning is a hungry event.


Turned items for Safe Passage July event and sale are due to Laura Welter, via Brian or Lee no later than July 5th.  Preferably earlier.  You will need to write a brief description of the piece, so the information can be transferred to their documents.   We are expecting about 20 turned pieces to be on display at the show July 6 – July 29.  We will be showcasing our turnings with the Mendocino Furniture Makers.
