This Month's Meeting

February 17th (3rd Thursday)

6:30 pm

Our February meeting will feature Yeung Chan presenting The Chinese Armchair - How DId They Make It? His presentation will include chair parts and joints that Yeung has reproduced (and in some cases recreated) using more modern woodworking techniques. Yeung investigation is "cutting edge" because he investigated something that is not documented in books, drawings or historical documents - but the physical result did survive hundreds of years!
