SHOW and TELL PROJECTS
************************************************************************

A stool of cedar with a cherry finish is held by David Garcia.  The dowels for the stretchers are store bought - yeah...who'd wanna lathe long skinny dowels.

   L1020648.JPG (111612 bytes) From a slide show Henry Majoue points out features of kitchen cabinets and shelves that he constructed and installed. Henry's challenge was to blend in the molding with the original by use of routing, planing and sanding.  He used plywood and yellow pine.

*************************************************************************

Once again Bob Wink shows off more Arts and Craft style woodworking. In this series Bob used decorative tiles encased in wood frames. A better use of tiling than sticking them in the bathroom.

L1020658.JPG (90890 bytes) Lon Kelley proudly shows club members a couple of cedar bowls he turned that were from the same log of a tree. The tree was cut down first - but not by Lon.

*************************************************************************

Dennis Muras holds a window from a caboose that he is restoring.  What's a caboose, you say?  Back in the old days the last car of a freight train accommodated the brakemen and the conductor - hot coffee, bunks, privies, and, of course, a card table.  The hobos had to make do with empty box cars.

Jere Kessler crafted this ferry boat from European river ferrys.  I suppose if Tinkerbell road this it would be a "fairy" boat.  Jere also crafted this model of a US Air Force cargo plane.  Jere used a clean coat matt finish on the decals to protect them.

*************************************************************************

Mark Behring proudly showed members a scroll sawed luminary featuring an LED light, an intarsia log cabin, and a rack to cradle spoons used to stir whatever is cooking in a pot, even peas porridge.

Ryan Schorman explained to members how he crafted this "camera".  Ryan was seeking help from woodworkers who could construct more of these.  Ryan needs them for camera classes that he teaches.  L1020706.JPG (196719 bytes) L1020708.JPG (191519 bytes)
