It is interesting that many of our members remember starting our shops with very few tools and a minimum of space in which to work. Thanks to garages and the ability to move to the outdoors. Phil had many ways in which to expand the capability of his tool complement  by some very simple modifications. Each tool was configured to hang on the garage wall and placed in like operations  to reduce the searching time for a tool. Phil also has a few designs that are available to replicate if a member sees a need. Thanks to Phil and we look forward to more of  his projects in the future. 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.

Many of the buildings deigned in those early years were banks (Jesse James and his gang did their banking in these very same buildings).

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.

Thanks to Les and we look forward to more of  his projects in the future .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.

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.

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.
