February 2013 President’s Message:
2013 meetings are off to a roaring start. The presentation on finishing wood turnings by Ed Auker was excellent. The acquisition of the new Delta midi-lathe and our new location at the Roaring 20’s clubhouse is a quantum leap forward for our ability to do presentations.
February Meeting Presentation:
Don’t miss the February meeting. Chris Simonsen will turn a duck call and instruct us on “how it is done.”
We will have a workshop on Saturday, February 16 at Stan Lambert’s shop to turn urns. The Mitchelloti-Sawyer Mortuary has a need to bury some US military personnel cremains that were never claimed. For this they need urns. In the October 2012 AAW Magazine there was an article outlining how a New York chapter of the AAW was making urns for the same purpose and outlined the format for making the urns. This involved making twelve 7 1/2 “segmented staves which are glued together to form a tube which is then turned. Then tops and bottoms are also turned to complete the urn. The top/bottom pieces are discs of wood that are 9 inches in diameter. If you come to the Workshop we will be able to saw the staves for you to the length, width, and bevel needed and then help you glue them. Please bring your own lumber… preferably a plank that is ¾ inch thick, 5 inches wide and 5 feet long. And bring the top/bottom wood. For this you will probably have to glue a couple of boards together. And bring your own wood glue.
And remember… 2013 dues are due if you haven’t paid.
This will be a banner year for the Yellowstone Woodturners!
