April 2017 CCW Meeting Reminder

Fellow Woodturners, our next meeting is Tuesday April 4, 2017 at the Lyndon House Arts center, 293 Hoyt St, Athens.  If you can come early at 5:30 and help with setup it would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks last month to Drew, John, Nancy and Lynn for their help and of course all in the clean up.  Remember, dues are due.

For our April meeting we have Steve Mellott as our demonstrator.  Steve has provided us with the attached brochure that outlines his bio and demonstrations that he has made in the past.

For our evening Steve will be providing a brief presentation and discussion of his “dizzy” bowl.  After this discussion, Steve will turn his “Beads of Courage” box shown below.  Beads of Courage is a charity that Steve supports through his turnings.  This organization is a 501C3 tax exempt organization dedicated to helping children with serious illness tell their stories of survival.  It is a very worthwhile organization and to learn more about it Google Beads of Courage. The work by Steve and other turners who support this organization help a large number of at risk pediatric oncology patients.

The box is made from several different woods as you can see from the picture below.  It measures about 6” or more in diameter and approximately 6” tall. This demonstration should be very good and prove to be worthwhile for all attendees and guests.

Remember to invite and bring a friend and also bring some wood or other material for our raffle.
