Next meeting: July, 8th 2017
Since the first Saturday in July is close to the 4th of July, we will meet July 8th. At our meeting we will have a project that we have not seen for quite a while. Hulit Connally will be conducting a class on carving a blue gill perch. As you can see by the attached picture, this is a great project and we will have fun carving it. This is different from what we normally carve and Hulit will be working with us for the next two meetings, July and August. If you were at the June meeting you saw an example of Hulit’s work. And those of us that were there are looking forward to carving this perch. Please remember to bring your tools and you may want to bring a V tool and U gouge and a knife. Also remember that at the last two meetings, some folks have unfortunately cut themselves. So while sharp tools are a must, wearing a glove is also a habit we need to get into. Hope to see you all at the July meeting, Saturday July 8 at 9:30.

Meetings are from 9:30 to 12:30 and are held at the Woodcraft store, which is on the northwest corner of 45 and 1960. We encourage you to bring projects that you were working on for show and tell and projects that you may have questions on. We have a monthly raffle and quite a friendly group. If you haven’t been lately, come see how we are growing and the new friends that we have. Meetings are the first Saturday of the every month except when there are holidays. Then we move it back one week. Look for us in the back right hand corner of the store. That’s where we gather for our meetings.

As always, there will be goodies and our famous raffle. Class starts at 9:30 and there’s always plenty of help available if you need it. We appreciate Woodcraft letting us have space for our meetings. They are located at:

This March we will have a class taught by Tom. You can choose to carve one of two different but similar carvings.
The wood is 1 1/2" by 1 inch. The blanks will be roughed out, so a person can carve either the dog or Santa with their head in a sack.

Happy New Year's everybody! I hope your holidays were great. Dues for all wood wizards are due at the beginning of each year and are $10 per year. I hope you will join us at Fred's class and tell us what your holidays were like. We have a small but fun group and we hope you will come.
