Olympic Peninsula WoodturnersThe Olympic Peninsula Woodturners are a chapter of the American Association of Woodturners serving the Kitsap and Olympic Peninsula of Washington. We have a membership of more than 100 enthusiastic woodturners and monthly meetings where we exchange ideas, share projects, and learn from local, national, and international demonstrators.
NEXT MEETING: BRAD STAVE BRINGS IT!He might be doing hollow forms. He might be doing lamps. He could be doing hollow forms and lamps. Maybe it's hollow forms for lamps. The possibilities are somewhere in that neighborhood, and the good news is that you probably won't have to wait until the meeting to find out. Check back in a day or two to see if the blanks in the database have been filled in.
ESTATE SALEAll too often, the passing of a fellow woodturner means a windfall to other woodturners. That could be the case here. Take a look at this on-line auction, ending Thursday. This guy had quite an inventory of tools and materials, especially in the pen making area.
Winning bids can be picked up in the DuPont/Puyallup area, and shipping is available. According to the bidding instructions, they charge sales tax and 15% seller's premium.
ARE WE IN TOUCH?
There are a lot of reasons why you could be missing out on your copy of the newsletter, meeting reminders, or other notifications. Every mailing, we get messages back telling us that some of the addresses were bogus, and we can't reach you to tell you about it. It could be your handwriting, our eyesight, an entry error, or just a stray electron in the database, but just let us know and we will fix it. Our notices could be mistaken for spam by some email clients, and you may actually have our mail in your spam folder and don't know it. Check your spam folder, and if it isn't there, just drop a line to the Public Affairs VP or the Membership VP. You could also just let us know at the next meeting.
THE MEETING STARTS AT 6:30 pm
