|Hmm, I think I could almost fit in there!|

|Thank goodness for many hands and strong backs, that's Vince smiling in the background.|
Vince had been to my shop where I shared a finishing technique with him. Since we only applied the first coat he asked me to bring a drawer to the meeting after two more coats were applied. This brought about a discussion on the joinery and the finish.
The wood is Bloodwood which proved to be a hard, sinewy, SOB to cut half blind dovetails in so after many practice attempts and a broken skew chisel I opted for dowels instead.

A couple of other things brought up was the lathe turning workshop that will be held this weekend at Woodworkers Emporium. You can check their website through this link for details.
Jim was going to do the presentation for the next meeting but then remembered a previous commitment so we'll have to wait until March for that. In the meantime, another member volunteered to present for February. Jamie mentioned who it was but alas -- I had the dreaded senior momennt and forgot who it is! Would whoever it is please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know who you are and what you plan to do so I can put it on the calendar? Really appreciate that.
