July 2018 meeting: Shapes and forms by Jim Rogers

Jim Rogers

Jim reminded us of the importance of shapes and forms to the look and acceptance of our work. He provided a review of work from earlier times. It is amazing how well the principles of form were understood from an earlier time. We have different perceptions of the sames art pieces, but basic principles are constant. The 'Golden Mean' is basic, but do we make measurements?

Click here to see Jim's summary of design elements. It is worth a review.

August Meeting BBQ Riddle: what do you call a monthly wood turning meeting that has no demonstration, no lathe, no president's challenges and no CA glue to sell?

Why it is the annual BBQ meeting. And this year we are meeting in a wonderful new venue, Cuesta Park in Mt. View. It is just a short distance from Bridges Community Church (see address below )

Cuesta Park
615 Cuesta Drive
Group picnic site #1 (this is at the end of the parking lot - no walking involved)
Start time 4:00 PM, Tuesday August 14th.

What we will have at this event, is BBQ chicken, and polish sausage, various chips and drinks and a good time to share with fellow wood turners from WBW and SVC. You are welcome to bring adult refreshments and for those of you who signed up to bring side dishes please do.

There will be no wood raffle or silent auction this year unless someone just has to purge old tools or orphan wood. However you are welcome to bring any new turnings that you want to show off as we will have a time allowed for show and tell. Look forward to seeing members from both clubs at this event.
