ReminderFellow Woodturners, Our next meeting is on Tuesday, July 1, 2014 at the Lyndon House Art Center, 293 Hoyt Street, Athens, Georgia.  The meeting begins at 6 PM and ends by 8:30 PM to conclude clean-up by 9 PM, the closing time of the Lyndon House.  However, come at 5:30 PM to help in set-up and enjoy a sandwich with fellow club members.  Bring your own drink.  Sandwich fixings will be available for a $3 contribution for those that want to partake.  This is being done on a trial basis and you will be asked to vote on whether to continue this or not.  Also, don’t forget to bring in your turned bottle stopper for a chance to win a nice prize for the one voted best.
Our demonstrator for the month is Peggy Schmid.  She will be demonstrating turning natural edge platters and adding texture to the turned piece.  Turning platters can be challenging, especially if it has a natural edge.  She will show her method for mounting and turning natural edge burls with irregular edges and surfaces. She will also show how she incorporates textures and color to enhance the design.  there are a multitude of opportunities when texturing and she will show how to take patterns from nature and how to balance these patterns optically. This proves to be a unique turning experience.  Check out her web page at www.peggyschmid.com . Look forward to seeing you there.
