  • Event Type:Monthly Meeting
  • Held On on:July 19, 2017
  • Topic:Making Precise Small Parts

The Details:

A great meeting at Woodworkers Source in Tempe.

Most notable was that we had a "new" president for a day! Thanks to David for filling in - he did a great job!

Along with our Show & Tell, raffle and networking, we got a chance for open house in the store after normal business hours.

Looks like our Members have been busy in their workshops, we had a lot going on especially considering the warm weather.

Our featured topic of the month was how to make small, very precise parts. Lee demonstrated the techniques he uses so effectively on all his miniatures. Check out the example below.
