November General Meeting Photo Gallery

The Nov 15, 2014 General Guild Meeting held at Tom McLaughlin's shop in Canterbury, NH was well attended. Sixty members and newcomers crowded into Tom's shop to hear Claude Dupuis and Jon Siegel demonstrate bowl and spindle turning techniques. In the afternoon session, Tom showed how he makes a very accurate tablesaw sled from MDF and baltic birch plywood. Tom also described how he is making an elaborate chest of drawers for a Houston client.

8th Woodturning Symposium—May 9, 2015

Mark your calendars for our next one scheduled for May 9, 2015. Once again there will be a full-day of activities at Pinkerton Academy in Derry NH, including: demonstrations by some of the nation’s finest woodturners, a gallery of work by demonstrators and attendees, a trade show with many turning tools, accessories, wood and other items for sale, and a lunch.

As part of the trade show, Oneway Manufacturing is again offering a special to attendees. Order a lathe from them and they will bring it to the symposium saving shipping fees. The lathe will be used by a demonstrator that day before you pick it up. It’s a great way to get a high quality lathe without the expensive shipping costs!

There will also be a Youth Turning Day on Friday, May 8. Stay tuned for more details on the Youth Day!

So save the date and watch for registration and additional information that will be available closer to the event.
