Starting out a new year

With all the uncertainty a new year brings, as woodworkers we can all be certain of one thing: images like these make us do a double-take, maybe even drool a bit.

… so if you’re wiping the spittle off your chin, you’re probably in the right place.

We plan on starting out the new year with more ways to bring eye candy to your work other than relying on spectacular wood grain. In January, Autumn Doucet will give an extensive presentation on how to buy, cut and inlay mother of pearl, paua abalone, and other raw materials. So if you would like to incorporate the ability to add a little something to your woodworking skills, join us on January 17th. Information regarding meeting time, date, and place are on the right-hand sidebar.

Check out the blog section of this site to see updates leading up to the inlay demonstration. Included will be important links and tutorials.

Pybus event

The December Pybus event turned out better than we could have expected, with lots of public interest to spur us on. Craig Dixon and his wife worked hard to arrange the setup, and we all benefited from their insight and planning (and our new sign). One thing is certain: we have a lot of chair makers in our group.

A note of thanks

We would like to extend our sincerest thanks to Darrell Peart for his presentation to our group in November.  Because of the timing of the meeting, many of us were unable to attend, but those guild members who were lucky enough to be there gleaned new information from his slide presentation of Greene & Greene furniture and his portfolio. “Engaging” was the adjective used most by those who attended, and they appreciated the many woodworking tips Darrell passed along, including how he executes the making of certain joints.

  2. The meeting and activity updates are always on the right-hand sidebar, but I suppose I’ll have to figure out a way to make that stand out more. Thanks for letting me know I need to make reference to the sidebar in the text. The Jan 17 meeting will be held at 7 pm at Steve Voorhies’ shop; 3190 Number 1 Canyon Rd. in Wenatchee. Thanks for your interest and hope to see you there.
