This Month's Meeting

July 18th (3nd Thursday)

7:00 pm

Main Presentations

Our 7 PM Tech Talk will actually be a Tech Tour by Lyle Bartlett of Bartlett Cabinetry our host for the evening. He will show us some of the highly automated machinery that his staff of 15 use on a regular basis. One key component is a CNC machine where he will show us the digital image of the cuts to be made on the monitor and might possibly have it cut right in front of our hungry-for-learning-about-woodworking eyes. Lyle has some scraps he will be donating to the club members (that is, if we are nice and don't leave soda cans and coffee cups on his fine equipment).

Our own Linda Salter will do the main presentation for the evening . She will show us how she makes those stunning segmented bowls. Since it is an involved and time-consuming process, she will not be able to turn one. She will have slides to help describe the complex process of working out the design then gluing different wood pieces together to form rings. Eventually the rings are stacked and glued together to form the rough bowl. It is then turned and if you are lucky and skillful, the bowl will come out as intended. By evening's end, we will all be able to make these bowls on our just bought lathes.
