We had a good time in the booth at The Woodworking Shows.  We have learned to keep it simple and that makes for a more relaxing show. We met a few people who were interested in SAPFM and probably picked up a couple of members. Thanks to Jim Van Hoven for demonstrating riving and shaving spindles for Windsor chairs, Bart Genovese for demonstrating bent laminations, Dean Jansa for demonstrating hand tool use, and Kevin Alto for demonstrating making a small ,simple Windsor bench.. See you at the January Meeting!
