Info about our March meeting

Two words - FIELD TRIP!!!

Sin City Woodworkers, a Vegas valley social and networking group committed to serious (and not so serious!) woodworking discussions, meet on the third Wednesday of each month to share everything from techniques and ideas to information about local suppliers and much more. We usually meet at Studio: Wood It Is! but this month, we’re changing things up a bit.

Our next meeting will be on March 21, at the normal time: 7:00. BUT - this meeting will be held at Rich Daugherty’s woodshop, which is located at 5201 Jay Avenue, Las Vegas 89130.

Rich is planning on doing a demo of cutting a lambs tongue on the end of a stopped chamfer, as he did with his 17th century Moxon twin-screw vise. It's a big chamfer in maple, and he’ll use a carcase saw, chisel & mallet, float, chisel plane, and his secret weapon - Auriou rasps. Rich is a tool aficionado, and his shop is probably full of more goodies than a Lee Valley store, so you’ll definitely want to join us!

Rich sent along these directions:

From Cheyenne and Rancho, go north to Jay Avenue. There's a church on the corner of Rancho and Jay which is your landmark for the turn. If you get to Gowan you've gone a block too far, but you can turn right on Gowan, go east to Thom, turn right and go one short block to Jay and run right again. Jay also goes through to N. Decatur.

Hope to see you there, this is going to be an interesting one!
