Hope we did not miss anyone’s project and remember you are entered in a raffle when you participate in SHOW & TELL.

PROGRAM –President Roy took the floor tonight for this evening program and introduced us to the many ways “TO FLATTEN AND STRAIGHTEN A BOARD” (warning-if you go too far you end up with veneer or toothpicks). It is interesting how far one will go to salvage that last piece of lumber that just fits your project. But we all know if you can salvage a motor with a few bearings there must be a way to straighten a board. Once again Roy proved his point that the plane is mans best friend. Once again we thank Roy for stepping forward and passing on his skills and knowledge. 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.

CHRISTMAS GATHERING-Remember to bring your food or dessert items-Bob Pressly will be doing his PULLED PORK. Don’t forget to help with the kitchen shores.

WOODWORKING SHOW- sign up sheet available – American Royal – January 20-22.
