Open Shop, 19 August, 2017, at 41 Jeremy Ct., Pataskala, OH

 

"Please come and see my shop on 19 Aug.  Time is 10 – 4, but if you show early or stay late I don't care. Everyone is welcome, so please bring your covered dish to share and folding chair to sit on, or you can use a log out of the wood pile.  We plan to eat around 12 – 12:30; we will be having meatballs so you can make subs.  I want to try to gear this open shop toward the beginners, so I have a couple of topics that I want to cover, I'll solicit those with experience to help in my demonstrations.  Though I'm not the best, most beginners have questions concerning sharpening.  Around 11, I plan to show those interested my set up, the wolverine jig, and try to answer any questions.  After lunch, my plan is to show/answer questions about tools and projects (Bowls, bowl gouge, spindle gouge, etc.).  The lathes will be available all day and I have tools and wood, so prepare to make a mess.  The best way to learn is to ask and then to do, so be prepared to put your hands on tools.  Please come and enjoy the fellowship and if you see a piece of wood that calls to you, ask and you will probably take it home. (If you ask Nancy she will give you all the wood in the shop, but I'll have hidden the ones I want to keep)  See you on the 19th."          Bruce
