This Month's Meeting

April 19th (3rd Thursday) 6:30 pm

Our April meeting will be at Woodcraft-San Carlos. It will be a Tech and Tool Talk Extravaganza by our own members.

The Tech Talk will be by Bruce Woods on the "Stealth Project." A wooden bomber that radar doesn't pick up? Come see and hear.

There will be three Tool Talks as follows.

  • Eric McCrystal doing a Festool Demo
  • Jamie Buxton will show two jigs which he designed to assist the Festool guided saw
  • Tony Fanning will evaluate the "Work Sharp" tool sharpener
  • John Blackstone will talk about two tools: Bridgecity's CS-1 centerscribe, and BP-18 bevel protractor.

There will also be Show &Tell, and a Silent Auction (if any)

Chances on the Birds Eye Maple will still be available.
