DUE TO COVID All Meetings are virtual via Zoom           


Strait Turners will not have a regular club meeting in December
Strait Turners January 26th  (ZOOM) Meeting,

The Strait Turners January Zoom meeting will be on January 26th at 12:00 pacific.  We will have a short auction and some club business and then have a great presentation from Rick Urban. 

Platter Chatter it is for January 26th at 1pm Pacific with an 11:45 join for a systems check and club meeting.  An excellent choice in my opinion.  Since you picked one without an overview online I've included a DRAFT overview document.  This is a demo I've been migrating and updating.  The emphasis is on form and design as opposed to the mechanics of converting a board into a plate.  We will, of course, be removing the parts of boards that do not belong in a platter, but the focus will be on the elements that make it more successful (or less), an important and underplayed topic (again in my opinion).  

 

I will also plan to introduce some texturing if time cooperates.



Changing the way you think about wood one piece at a time.


 

More information will be sent to members as we get closer to the meetings

     The Gardiner Community Center is located at 980 Old Gardiner Road Sequim.   The GCC is located 10 miles east of downtown Sequim on RT 101.   The easiest way to get there is take a left off of RT 101 that is right after the left turn lane going to Diamond Pt. Rd, which will be the second left turn center lane and take a left onto Old Gardiner Rd.   Go down Old Gardiner Rd & the GCC is on the right.   Park in the upper lot and use the front entrance.   Please park in the designated parking spaces only, if all the spaces are full, please use the church parking lot next door for overflow parking.



Our club is always looking for donated items to be used in the monthly "raffle" & "wood" for the wood auction. All of these proceeds go directly to the club to help keep our yearly  membership fees at a reasonable rate & to promote  club activities & woodturning .
