Rudy Lippert proudly talked about his ceremonial inlay box that he crafted.  80% of the information that he needed came from video tapes in the club library.  He discovered that Koolaid makes a great permanent dye that can be used on wood.  Rudy also stated that auto spray paint is readily available, in many colors, and has been reformulated such that it works well on wood also.        CeremonialBoxAug05-05.jpg (174379 bytes) LippertAug05-26.jpg (139726 bytes) CeremonialBoxAug05-06.jpg (135669 bytes)

 Gary Rowen demonstrates the technique of air piano on his stand for an electronic piano.  He didn't want to spend $110 on an MDF imported version (plus S&H) so he spent $80 at Home Depot for red oak. It is custom fit to Gary's size and was constructed with simple butt joinery then glued and screwed.  Edges were routed to soften them and the back top edge was beveled to minimize damage if the knee is banged.
