Topic: TOYS FOR TOTS The June meeting will be the kickoff to our 34th year with the TWA Toys for Tots Program. We are returning to a normal General Meeting in June. After six years, Sear Stone has decided to end the generous support they have been giving us, including free use of their banquet room and a discount on the dinner. We are planning a Pot Luck Dinner for our December Meeting but NOT the June meeting. More details to follow. Workshop Hosts who plan any new toys for this year will present them for review during the June meeting. The current list is the following: • Joe Sabo — Pop Wheel Push Toy and Small Box • Bob Gabor — Doll Bed • Bob Andrews — Motor Grader
Topic: UNIQUE CUTTING BOARDS Speaker: Bill Burton Bill will demonstrate how to make some unique cutting boards. When you look at his finished product you will ask yourself “how did he do that?” Bill says he will make it easy for us. I say he will make it possible to do. Come with a pencil and pad; you will need to take notes. Bill will offer a Workshop if there is sufficient interest.

Topic: TRADITIONAL WRITING DESK CONSTRUCTION DETAILS Speakers: Roger and Judy Sanwald Roger and Judy will describe the processes involved in ebonizing wood for cockbeading and applying the beading to dovetailed drawer fronts. They will also share the design for a secret compartment in a drawer; and, the design and application of carved corner brackets for the legs. Host: Bob Andrews
