From the Presidents Corner – September 2015

Allen Goodman’s Class was a lot of fun.  I am hopeful we will have some examples at show and tell.  Allen gave the club a “go by”, remind me to show it to you all.

Please enter your work in the Georgia National Fair in Perry, Ga. 2015.  Fair website:  Get your form there.  There is no cost to enter. Send in by Sept. 1, or preregister online.  Please contact Doug McKittrick with questions:  If you can, offer YOUR help to Doug on this project. This is an Atlanta Woodcarvers CLUB participation matter.  Your help is needed.  Thank you!!!

Jim Hart (715 268 8713) with GOOD WOOD ETC (Turtle Lake, Wisconsin) is planning on being in town Thursday, September 10, 2015.  This is a great opportunity to get the wood you want!  If you know what you want and cannot make it on the 10th, we will figure out how to get your order for you.  Think Basswood, Butternut, Tupelo, Diamond Willow twisted Sticks, etc.

Our August program, carving a bowl, I thought was a lot of fun.  I enjoyed everyone sharing what they learned.  Hope to see some completed projects at show and tell.

The next meeting will be: Tuesday September 8, 2015, from 6:30 until 8:30 P.M. at the Tucker Recreation Center, 4898 LaVista Road, Tucker, GA 30084

Our program will be “Friendship Cane”.  Vice-President, Nelson Cruthirds ( will host the program.  Bring carving knife, any small hand tools and protective equipment.  Look up friendship canes on the internet to get ideas about what type segment you want to make.  Nelson is bringing some ideas too.  One thing we will have to decide as a club is, what do we want to do with the completed cane?  A second decision is do we want to have a theme to the cane?  (Animal, holiday, flowers, etc. or none).

One idea may be to display the finished cane at the local library starting in 2016 as we celebrate our 40th year as a club.  At our December 2016 pot luck we might raffle the cane to the members.  What do you think??

See you Tuesday night,

Carmen (president)
