Our Guest Speaker, Everett Woolum, spoke to club members about his career in woodworking, a career that began when he was fourteen.  He spoke of splitting ash logs with wedges that would yield wood for baseball bats, not quite Louisville Sluggers but they sure were hits.  Please visit his website at Comtool Technology, Inc.

          Rich Duffy holds his tire thumper, aka, mallet he crafted of hard maple.  The bowl is turned of bird's eye maple and the vase of walnut.  The vase is still in work, hence, the lathe plate still attached.
