The May meeting will consist of two major items: an extended show and tell session and a question and answer session conducted by a panel. The panel will consist of Pat McCart, Dave Schweizer, Paul Crabtree, Ted Bartholomew, Jim Cotter, and Bill Wood. The panel will act as a sounding board for your questions, preferably related to wood turning, but, what the heck, we will try anything. Seriously though, if the answer does not come from the panel, I am sure that someone in our audience will be able to assist. We are extremely fortunate in having a member base that has delved into almost all elements of turning; be it spindles, bowls, vessels, segmented, pens, decorating, finishing, or what have you.
Please bring the pieces that you enjoy the most and share them with the rest of us. If you have a problem piece, by all means bring it with you. There will be someone here who can help you with it. If you are wondering what tool to use or if there is a jig that would make your turning easier, this is the time and the place to address it.
Most of the time we have to cut short the time allotted for helping each other solve problems or explaining how in the world you do that. This is the meeting to resolve those problems. So bring your problems and your problem resolutions and attend what should turn out to be a very inspirational meeting.
