The regular monthly meeting of OPCAAW will feature a demonstration by Tampa, Florida-based woodturner Rudolph Lopez.
Lopez is a regular demonstrator at national AAW symposiums. "I love everything about wood, rough or smooth it possesses a warm welcome feel. Wood grows from the earth, with its endless earthy color variations, the swirling grain patterns of burls and knotty woods," Lopez says. "It has an unlimited potential for creativity but also flaws and faults, cracks, knots, and other defects which sometimes makes it difficult to work with. This is my favorite kind of wood. Wood is an imperfect medium, yet I never cease to be amazed by the incredible amount of beauty to be found in it as I create a new turning."
OPCAAW members can start signing on for our Zoom meeting as early as 5:30 to socialize. President Brad Stave will make club announcements starting at 6:15.
A virtual Show & Tell presentation will start immediately thereafter, with the demonstration following. Members wishing to show their work in Show & Tell should email up to four photos, two each of two different projects, to Jeff Brody by 5 p.m. Monday, Aug. 24. For details about photo files, check our monthly newsletter.
All members in good standing will receive an email announcement with the link to enter the Zoom meeting prior to Aug. 26.
