January Meeting Recap:


January 2016 meeting - Mark Knize, creator of unusual shapes

Mark Knize     

It was an interesting program because it focused on unusual items and shapes. He talked about the different shapes, such as the section of log with the center cut out and a floating gold ball to the large round walnut wall hanging. He displayed several of his tools to do specific types of cuts.
He turned the green ball, one half at a time and assembled it after completing both halves. The wall of the ball is approx one inch thick. See other photos here
