October Discussion/Demonstration:

Tormek Sharpening System

Wendell Willoughby, manager of the Woodcraft of North Houston store, will be the featured demonstrator for this month's meeting. Wendell will discuss and demonstrate the Tormek wet sharpening system which can be used for sharpening a variety of different tools. Don't miss this opportunity to see how this system can help your cutting tools do a better job.

Remember to bring some of your recent projects: Be sure to bring some of your recent turned projects for our Show and Tell, or Show and Ask session. This can be a completed turning, or one that you are still working on. During our Show and Tell, you will have the opportunity to show your turning to the group and tell us a little about how you turned it, what finish you used and if you encountered any challenges when turning, sanding, or finishing the piece. Everyone in the club is interested in what you've been doing at the lathe. If you need help with a project you're working on, bring it and let's discuss it during the Show and Ask session. There is a lot of experience in the club and everyone is always happy to help.

November Meeting Changes/Updated: Our meeting for November will be held on November 21st, not the 28th as was previously mentioned and will be held at Pete Allen's studio in The Woodlands. I will be demonstrating various tools and methods to hold projects on the lathe. This demo will be a great opportunity for you to see different tools and techniques to mount projects on the lathe. (Note: The date for this meeting was changed due to the Thanksgiving holiday. The location was changed because the remodeling at my home will not be finished in time for the meeting.)

Invite your woodturning friends: Please invite any of your woodturning friends who you think may be interested in joining our club. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me (Steve) at 713-826-0046 Cell, or Pete Allen at (281) 364-9765. I'm looking forward to seeing you all at Woodcraft. Take care and best wishes to you and yours!
