November Guild Meeting

The GNHW’s second guild wide meeting of the year will be on November 21st, and hosted by Scott Ruesswick at his shop in Canterbury. The first hour is for getting settled, checking DVDs in and out, buying shirts and caps, greeting friends, and getting coffee and donuts.

I’ve been told many woodworkers are interested in turning and the rest are interested in turning but don’t know it yet. Given this, the Granite State Wood Turners, this meeting’s subgroup presenters, will be demonstrating their craft. Not only will the Turners demonstrate their many skills, they will demonstrate basic skills hands-on. Volunteers will be handed a gouge and have an opportunity to turn their own bowl. Isn’t it time you brought your turning skills up to par? The afternoon presenter is furniture maker Ted Blachly. Ted’s shop, in Warner just up Interstate 89 on the way to Sunapee, is where he does most of his work, known for it’s free form and contemporary style. For our presentation, Ted went back through the many pieces he has made and chose three to talk about. Each had some challenge or special problem that he had to solve in some unique way.
