Next Meeting: September 10th, 2016

Hello wood wizards!


Because the first Saturday of the month of September falls on a holiday weekend, we will be moving the meeting to the 10th.

Tom Mirser will be giving the September program which will consist of a small dog getting into a pack of dog food; or a Santa bending over into a stack of toys. Both projects are small and can be easily finished in the class time allotted. Please bring a friend and something for show and tell and any carving questions that you may have.

As always, bring your show and tell, questions about your carvings, and any new tricks you learned. We will also have our usual raffle. Bring the smile and bring a friend, come for a good time.

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.

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:

Hello Wizards,

Our December project is a bear that can be carved in a three-hour time frame. You can take it home and hang it on your tree.

You have a couple of options with the bear; such as a bear with a heart or a package. Bring your favorite carving tools and have some fun and conversation!

Here is a heads up to some of the steps:

  • Center line around the bear.
  • Choose a heart or a package.
  • Do not push nose and snout back into the face
  • Set ears on or forward of center line.

See you there,

John Roberts
