May 2022 Meeting Highlights

NEWS

The May meeting of the Lee’s Summit Woodworkers guild had another excellent turn out with over 60 members in the room and another 4 joining remotely via Zoom.

Roy Wall, Guild president, briefed the membership that the board of directors authorized the purchase of a new web domain for the Guild website so that the Guild could create their own account with GoDaddy and assume control of the Guild Website.

Randy Stone, Board Member, presented to the membership several changes to the Guild bylaws recommended by the Guild Board of Directors. The changes brought the bylaws in line with the Guild’s Articles of incorporation with the State of Missouri and adjusted the language around dues and meeting schedules to allow for greater flexibility. The changes were voted on and approved by the Guild membership and can be found under the members only section of the Guild website.

PHIL’S FINDS

Phil found a great deal on the The Hedgehog featherboard and purchased several so he could bring the great deal to the membership – they sold out fast. It has a single knob and single pivot point so it’s quick to set up and simple to adjust. Work safer. Work smarter. Phil bought several

This month’s show and tell was focused on Jig’s and Fixtures where the members brought in several handmade jigs that help in the shop. jay Helland also brought to the meeting a special guest, Emily from Lee’s Summit North High School. Jay has been working with Emilly over the past few months teaching her bowl turning techniques and other bowl design concepts. Emily brought to Show-and-Tell one of her first segmented, tulip ring bowls and described to the membership how she did it. She did a magnificent job!

If you want to display some of your work in the display case, you need to arrive at 6:30 PM the night of the guild meeting so we can lock up the display case and start the meeting at 7:00.

PROGRAM

This month’s presentation was by our own Bob Boehner

Bob shared a video of his sawmill operation that is located on highway 7 south of Pleasant Hill Missouri. He shared with the guild members his process for selecting and cutting logs and talked about all the various types of wood he has to offer. Bob also brought in a display that had various species of wood and challenged the Guild members to name them all. we didn’t do so good, and everyone got a good laugh out of it.

SHOW AND TELL

The members once again brought is some fabulous creations for show and tell and showed us all just what a talented membership we have. We are very blessed to be in the company of so many talented men and women. Some of their work can be viewed in the 2022 Gallery here or at our FaceBook page here.
