Hope we did not miss anyone’s project.

PROGRAM: This month’s program was on ZOOM and featured Mike Cobb who is well known as a coworker at Woodcraft and his sales days with Delta. Mike introduced us to his latest venture into the tool world through his moniker as WOODBUTCHER TOOL SALES. Mikes experience over the years put him in the position to create his tool estate sales business that allows him to provide expert advice as to the sales of your personal tools that can best be priced for his auction business. All sales are cash only and he arranges and advertises the auction-the location is advertised on sale day only.

If anyone wishes to contact Mike, he can be reached at mbcobb5@gmail.com. It was a pleasure having Mike as our presenter and hope we can see him at a future sale.

PHIL’S FINDS: Rockler Tadpole Tape Cutters that attach to various tape rolls and allows for easy tape cutting and length needed while keeping the cut end easily available for the next job. Several sizes are available to fit various tape rolls.

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.

IN MEMORY: Danny Jibsen who just recently rejoined the LSWG passed away on January 29 and our deepest sympathy goes out to the family.

NEXT MEETING: THURSDAY. JANUARY 13, 2022 at 7:00 PM (at the LIBRARY and on ZOOM).

President Roy closed the meeting at 8:50 PM.

Respectfully submitted-

Bill Akers-Secretary
