Doug Eaton performed a demonstration called Emerging Bowl.

August Meeting

John Fox gave an outstanding presentation on using the Beal System to apply a unique finish to your turnings. Below is a small sampling of pieces turned by club members.

July BBQ

The BBQ at our President’s residence down on the beautiful Polouse was a success with a turnout of about 45-50 members and significant others. Sam Frazier brought some outstanding brisket and the burgers were a big hit. Lots of good food to satisfy the palette. Gary showed off his shop and a recent black walnut haul and we all got to view his new mill for cutting slabs, etc. Special thanks to Tim and Brian and the other staff for all their help putting this together and a very special thanks to Gary and his family for hosting. I personally had a very good time even though I forgot to snap some pics, well that what good food does to you, ah!!!
