Show and Tell Last Meeting


The second & fourth Saturday of the month. The intent is to  accommodate as many people as possible and to involve as many turners as we can. If attendance and participation warrants it, we will increase the number of Saturdays for Open Shop during the month.        
     The intent and purpose of open shop is for any member to be able to come use a lathe and hone your skills or work on a project that you may not be able to perform on your own equipment. Or to simply receive help on any aspect of turning, whether it’s tool usage, work-piece mounting or anything turning related, 
     Learn to Turn / Skills Enhancement is a great opportunity for any member to come together with other members where we can help each other learn, practice, work on a special project, get to know each other, make connections and share your experience with others that can benefit from it. The best way to learn is by helping others and asking questions, so, take advantage of the experience of others and if we don’t know, we can all learn together. 
    If you have any questions or would like to volunteer to help, Mike McReynolds is the project chairman to contact. His contact info is: 816-356-7262 or 
    Keep turning and be safe. See you at the next available.
