After 2 years of Zoom meetings, this year we were able to move on to hybrid meetings.
Bruce Powell had worked out how we could make the system work with 2 screens, 2 projectors, 2 computers, a camera, microphone and an assortment of cables, So, with Bruce and Jon Kaplan at the controls and Max Goldstein as cameraman, we have been able to have combined in-person and on-line meetings since March.
These hybrid meetings have had both remote presenters and remote members.
For the first time BAWA had Show and Tell contributions from the East Coast.
Several members presented their pieces of furniture and explained the design and construction of them.
Some of our remote presenters also gave video tours of their workshop.
Tim Killan talked about the deign and construction of his Shaker Boxes, Yeung Chan talked about his chair designs and Eric McCrystal talked about his turned wooden mugs that incorporated dovetails.
We had classes on chisel making and marquetry plus a very interesting visit to the Arborica Saw Mill that Paul Krenitsky arranged.
We also had our 2nd Annual Picnic in the Park and, after missing 2 years, our Holiday Show and Tell party, to both of which members brought lots of interesting food
I am looking forward to all the interesting speakers and projects next year.
And a Happy Woodworking New Year
