Upcoming AUGUST Meeting

This month’s meeting will be held Wednesday, August 17, 7pm – 9pm at Woodworkers Source Phoenix, 18115 N. Black Canyon Highway, Phoenix, AZ 85023.  This is the “north” location of Woodworkers Source, on the northbound access road of I-17 between Bell Road and Union Hills Road.

 Special topic:  Rich Best will be giving an upholstery demonstration.  In his words:

chairEvery finely crafted chair, as the one seen at left, deserves a well-built seat in order for the chair to be inviting and comfortable.  Chairs & rockers that don’t sit well are void of fit and function, missing their intended purpose, and labeled works of art.  In this demonstration I will discuss the components, tools, and assembly of a seat destined for a stool in my shop.  (Found sitting out in the neighborhood for the garbage truck.  You got to love this green movement, you don’t have to feel bad about rummaging thought someone else’s trash!)

Show and Tell:   As usual, remember to bring your items for “show and tell”!
