Also he has a foldable workbench that you can stick under your arm and head for the next project. He stated that his projects are as small as a toothpick and as large as requiring a good sized crane to move.

PROGRAM –Vice President Greg stated that the program for tonight would be presented by Member Mike Chapman and would be about a MID CENTURY MODERN CHAIR -CUSTOMIZED. This would be a design that he modified from features defined in other chairs that were more to his liking and need. As with most projects of this type it is the patterns that are essential to building a replica of a vintage chair, but there are times when the “EYES VIEW” is the tool that is required to fabricate that one special piece.  Mike showed in detail the many joints that were used and the fact that very few mechanical fasteners were required due in part to their slip fit. When a fine furniture piece such as a chair is finished the question still remains “Is a chair meant for sitting or display?”. Thanks to Mike and we look forward to more of his projects. Don’t forget to help Vice President Greg Hull by keeping a lookout for anything that would be of interest to our members and thank him for his efforts to bring us a program each month.

VENEER APPLICATION TECHNIQUES. There are many methods for veneering as there are

wood types and glues to be used. Also the methods to be employed could be brought to to question by the experts. But our DUO have picked vacuum as the specialty for tonight. Lots of interest in the application and in the vacuum machine put together by Larry. Also the clock that

John used for his veneer project presented some challenges due to its curved feature. This

prompted several questions pertaining to the fixtures required to perform the veneering process.
