PRESENTER
*************************************************************************

 The Crazy Canadian, Paul Moore, demonstrated to club members how to use a bandsaw to make bowls from logs.  Paul demonstrated a carrier based (no, not aircraft) device that carries your wood piece through the bandsaw blade as opposed to using the fence.  Paul definitely showed an expertise with the bandsaw. Paul appears in numerous YouTube videos and is known for his 150 hp wood lathe

*************************************************************************
  Bruce White showed off a framed bird on a branch and a mouse pad of veneer on thin baltic birch.  Bruce asked club members if anyone recognized the type of veneer that he used - anyone have a clue?          L1040072.JPG (915068 bytes) L1040064.JPG (945550 bytes) L1040074.JPG (918837 bytes) L1040065.JPG (940353 bytes)
