Something most of us have in common when it comes to our woodworking is needing some type of hardware to complete our projects. Some of the more common items are available at the local big box store, Woodworkers Emporium, Sears, or Ace but do you have a special source where you find what you're looking for right here in Las Vegas? Especially that quality stuff that makes the differences in your project? How about those hidden internet sources that you use to find what you need? Quality hardware, specialized items, unique finishes, etc. we want to know!
Our monthly meeting (7:00 pm) will be a bit different this time. It will be a round table discussion which Jamie has coined: "all you've ever wanted to know about hardware and more …..!" We can combine this with another aspect of our meetings, the Show and Tell segment too. Here's what I'd ask you to do:
- If you have a source you'd like to share please write it down on a piece of paper for me. Include company name, address, and website info. If you'll give me that paper before you share the information I can take notes while you explain it.
- I'll take the info about the hardware plus the links and put that in my next blog so everyone can have that information.
- If you have a project and can bring that in to enhance your info with a show and tell that would be great as well!
This should be a wonderful opportunity for all of us to learn about various hardware sources local and internet that we can all use. Sharing information is what the group is all about so please bring in what you can and we'll all be better for it!
As always, the meeting is open to the public so invite a fellow woodworker to attend. You know the drill about the limited seating so bring your chair if you'd like. The address is 2267 West Gowan, unit 106 in North Las Vegas. Call Jamie at 702-631-1870 if you have any questions or need directions.
See you tomorrow -- John
