General Meeting—November 21

Tony Immorlica has a big program planned for our next meeting.

Feature Presentation

Owain Harris will give a brief slideshow about his background and career as a self-taught, full time woodworker, and follow that with a demonstration of stringing and inlay techniques using both hand and power tools.

Owain operates a one man shop in Deerfield NH where he builds custom furniture, cabinetry, and architectural millwork. He began his career in wood as a framing carpenter in 1997 and after several years working as both a finish carpenter and remodeler, he entered the shop full-time as a cabinetmaker in 2008. He has twice been awarded “Best in Show” at the Providence Fine Furnishings Show and is a juried member of the League of NH Craftsmen. You can see more of his work at harriscabinetmaker.com.

Morning Sessions

  • Period Furniture Group—Ed Taylor will give a comprehensive presentation about the activities of the PFG, including past projects along with the specific skills members have developed in executing the projects. He will also highlight the work of Al Breed, the current PFG mentor and instructor, and winner of the 2012 Cartouche Award. Future plans for the PFG, including the upcoming Pope Chest Project, will also be outlined.=
  • Panel Discussion—“Glue, What’s in YOUR Shop” Well, what can be more boring than glue—something we all use. Come and find out, while joining in with a lively panel of opinionated “experts” to discuss your favorite and not so favorite glues, do’s and don’ts, techniques, properties, what works for you and what doesn’t. I was surprised to find I have more than 10 types of glue in my shop, and I use every one of them. What about you?
