The President’s Challenge for July is to turn a box and donate it to the Beads of Courage program.  Guidelines for your box can be found at:

http://www.beadsofcourage.org/pages/woodturners.html

Ceramic beads are available from the club for $1.25 each.  They are 13/16″ in diameter.

Premeeting starts at 11:30am.  Tom Zeller will be teaching/turning tops.  Bring your own tools and safety gear (faceshield, smock,…).  Mentoring will be available.

The meeting starts at 1pm.  Paul Krautmann will be demonstrating the art of spindle turning and spindle duplication.  Paul spent his early woodturning career taking orders for spindle duplication.  He first project was making a spinning wheel.  The first spoke took him a day and a half, but the second spoke was 30 minutes.  This will be a fun and informative demonstration.

Hope to see you at the meeting on July 22nd.
