Hope we did not miss anyone’s project.

PROGRAM: This months program was presented by Bob LaDue (one of our own) and was all about SHAKER BOXES.  Originally constructed by Shaker communities in the 18th century. The boxes were made in various shapes and sizes with the oval shape ones being the most popular. Bob laid out a typical box with its fingers and explained the difficulties in getting the wood to bend and the attachment process. The Shakers were not the originators or inventors but did refine the their style and standardized on shapes and sizes.   Industrial manufacturing started in communities about 1800. The boxes were traditionally finished with milk paint. In the golden age (1822-1865) they produced about 70,000 boxes, but after the Civil War production fell to only hundreds annually. Shaker boxes were the TUPPERWARE of their time and were eventually replaced by the TUPPERWARE COMPANY. Thanks Bob for the history lesson and the HANDS ON opportunity to see what was and is a difficult process in the building of just one box. It was a pleasure having Bob as our presenter and hope we can hear him at future meetings.

BOB LaDUE REMARKS: Bob disclosed to the group his latest health concerns and what he is experiencing at the present time. Symptoms are getting worse currently and the future is not bright. He has made the decision to close the doors on his wood shop and refrain from using the table saw, lathe and other motorized equipments and also hand tools that somehow turn on you when least expected.  As bob stated about the demise of the Shaker Box by Tupperware his time in the shop is being replaced by health situations. Bob’s message to all is that we should look at our health situation and make that decision to do what is best for ourselves before someone else makes that decision for us. Bob, hope you find a way through this as you shut one door and open another with your camera in hand.

PHIL’S FINDS: DFM TOOL WORKS Aluminum Mini Square has many features and sells for about $40.00 (less at some outlets).

SHOP TIPS: Roy Wall used an iron and cloth to remove a water stain in an antique table.

Dale Kunz saves emery boards (various grits) to do his fine sanding.

Gerard Wissman brought in a box with wood samples-these are available with a donation to the “Tools For Teens “ project.

PROJECT DISPLAY CABINET: The library has offered a glass display cabinet for the members to show off their Show & Tell projects. Projects would be on display for about a month and would be identified as LSWG items with a plaque designed and made by Phil Morgan and an identification card designed by John Freeland indicating the owner. In this manner patrons to the library would be introduced to the LSWG and hopefully become members.

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.

ELECTION OF OFFICERS: It is that time again “PLEASE VOLUNTEER”.

 

PROGRAM –President Roy stated that the program for tonight would be presented by Leonard Hastings who comes to us from Wichita, KS . Les is a self taught wood worker who started his career in his dads workshop about the age of nine. He and his fellow wood workers are known throughout the United States for their designs and quality workmanship. Some customers never ask for a bid on a project but in the end are willing to pay the cost. Tonight he will go through the items that he brought with him which includes his MEAN WORK BENCH. 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. Les stated he would be willing to help anyone that needs some instruction on their project. 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.

ELECTION OF OFFICERS: It is that time again “PLEASE VOLUNTEER”

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.
