November Meeting this Wednesday 11/18

     Time flies by for us! Here it is almost time for our monthly meeting at the WoodItIs studio located at 2267 Gowan Road, North Las Vegas, Unit 106.  For any of you that need more information or directions you can call Jamie at her shop/school at 702-631-1870.  As always, the public is invited so bring your neighbor, spouse, or significant other to share what you do on these Wednesday nights.  We will have our usual short business meeting and discuss upcoming events.  One of those events is our end of the year party with the voting of your toys.  We failed to mention our traditional competition for the cash gift certificates last month but don't forget to make a toy that will be judged anonymously during our year end party.   The rules and information will be explained at the meeting and also the follow-up blog.

     There will a show and tell session where you can share with the group your latest project, tool, technique, etc. It's always nice to see what our members have created during the past month.  As always, limit your talk to around five minutes or so -- we need to allow our featured presenter all the time needed.  If you have a technique or project you'd like to share with the whole group see Jamie so she can schedule for future meetings.  Sharing your skills with others is one of the main focuses of the group.

    Our featured presenter this month will be Mike Cook who carves these outstanding Celtic inspired crosses among other things.  He's really perfected his style of carving on these inter-twined elements on his crosses.

He plans to not only bring in several examples of his beautiful work but also explain and demonstrate how he goes about achieving it.  In addition, the finish he uses creates a sense of age and importance to his work -- you'd think they were found on some Viking vessel of old rather than being created here in the southwest desert!

    As you know, seating can be hard to come by so you're encouraged to bring your own chair if you'd like.

Come to the meeting and be inspired by the work Mike does,  see you tomorrow night --- John
