October Meeting -  “Here's How I Do This”

Presented by TWA Members


Tuesday, October 15, 7:00 PM

For centuries, woodworkers have learned their skills from other woodworkers. At the October meeting, five TWA members will each share techniques that make them more efficient woodworkers.  Each presenter will demonstrate from a corner of the meeting room to 1⁄4 of the attendees for 15 minutes or so. Then, the attendees will rotate to the next presenter, and so forth.  The presenters and their topics are:

Jim Kroeger    His methodology for turning a bowl starting with a chunk of a tree.

George Mills        Using a computer for woodworking including CutList (a free program which shows how to cut a set of parts from a set of available stock material) and examples of projects designed using CAD software.

Michael Peele/Terry Tenhouse    Tips for quickly making custom fixtures to speed up repetitive operations (think Toys for Tots) while improving accuracy.

Roger Sanwald     Techniques for getting a really sharp edge on tools with a bevel such as chisels, spokeshaves, and plane irons.

Host:  Mike Payst
