From 9 to 9:30 is your chance to vote on the Challenge, rent DVD’s from the library.

Drop off your Beads OF Courage creations with Bob and Diane Puetz, there is a shortage of BOC bowls right now due to all the children the program is picking up.

Or see Bob Meyer and his assistants for the group purchase of CBN wheels and Timberwolf Bandsaw Blades.  Please come prepared and know the length blade of your bandsaw if you are ordering blades.

We have been getting 30% discount on the blades in a group order of 30 or more blades. 20% if we do not make the min of 30, and 15% if our order is less than 20.  Pay at the time the blades are delivered.

CBN wheels or other items from Woodturners Wonders, Please know what you will be ordering ahead of time.  For CBN wheels, you need to know the Grit you want. The size wheel and the size of the arbor.

Again you pay at the time you pick up your order after it has arrived.

(Note: most often an 8” grinder has a 5/8” arbor, and a 6” grinder has a ½” arbor), some non standard brands vary so be sure to measure.

We do have a grinder at the meeting set up with CBN wheels so you can see what they are.


Sit down meeting starts with announcements then the demonstration by Linda Ferber shortly afterward.

After the demo, as usual we will have the results of the challenge, Tool Raffle and wood raffle drawings.


Next meeting March 11th, the challenge for March is a buckthorn turning.

April meeting is the  8th  Check the Website calendar for the challenge.

May meeting has been moved the 6th of May to avoid Fishing opener and Mother’s Day weekend.

Bus to the symposium One of our members asked a few months ago whether we might consider a bus to the AAW Symposium in June 2017. Since that time I have had a few inquiries about this idea.   A bus trip to happen we need someone to step forward and organize it.
