MAY 2016 From the Presidents Corner:

In honor of the 2016 retiring elephants from Barnum & Bailey Circus bring your carved elephant (finished or not; one or more) to join the display parade. With your permission we will display in our display case for one month. (An unopened jar of roasted peanuts optional)

Anyone need a Dremel with accessories??? If you are interested place your name in the drawing box. We will draw after SHOW & TELL Tuesday night May 10th. This will be a free drawing thanks to Mr. Tom Harris who donated this Dremel to our club.

DUE MAY 10TH: ONE 6X6 WOOD QUILT PIECE with dogwood flower or AWC in the design and most important…carved by you. If you are not finished, tell Nelson so he can plan for it.

Do not forget the SOUTHEASTERN WOOD CARVING SCHOOL. Location and Schedule: This year’s School will be held July 8-10, 2016 at the Wetumpka Civic Center (410 South Main Street; Wetumpka, AL). If you have any questions ask me at the meeting.

May 10th PROJECT: Green Man Bird House

Thanks to Lamar, Jim and Nelson for their work on this Bird House project. A pattern will be made available to you. However you can do your own design. Bring a pencil, carbon paper if you have it, (we will have some if you do not). Bring your knife, gouges, safety glove. We will have plans to construct your own bird house. Should you need help with construction, we can help.

We are just some of the Chippers that meet on Thursday 10:00am to 2:00pm. Come join us when you can and bring whatever you are carving on. Bring your lunch or go outto lunch. We learn from each other and laugh a lot. Back row left to right Doug, Rob,Tim, Jerry, Lamar, Dave. Front row left to right Gail, Carmen, Nelson, Jim. See you soon!
