Subject: Club Minutes 1/21/2010

In attendance were Betty Campbell, Gerald Bruman, Joe Parson, Jeff Schnell, Richard Mason, Jeff Gerber, Doug James, Diane Brown and Arthur Bichsel. We had a nice discussion regarding future workshops and demonstrations. For this February, we will have our candlestick holder workshop Thursday, Feb. 18 at the Vo-Tech from 6:00 to 9:00 pm. Attending the workshop will be Gerald Bruman, Jeff Gerber, Richard Mason, Diane Brown, Doug James, Jeff Schnell and myself. Tom Henry has approximately 8 students attending his Vo-Tech class, so members have volunteered to bring in additional lathes for the workshop.

Betty Campbell has requested a sharpening workshop for March. We will use this sharpening class to sharpen the club tools. Arthur Bichsel will assist. Additional grinders will need to be brought in. For April, Gerald Bruman requested a demo on using the skew. Joe Parson has volunteered to help and Jeff Schnell will provide a video. Currently, nothing has been scheduled for May. For June or July, Doug James will demonstrate the Jamieson hollowing tool.

Raffle: We wish to thank Alan Tasoff for donating several tools for the raffle, which brought in $32.00.

Show and Tell: Gerald Bruman, who usually does something unique, brought in a very challenging large turning made up of layers of plywood. Jeff Gerber did a nice job in duplicating several turned end pieces for curtain rods.
