April 26th meeting Rock River Chapter
« on: April 29, 2014, 11:55:16 AM »
There were fifteen members and two guests who met at
Woodcraft in Woodridge, IL.  There were a total of eight presenters.  One presenter, Tom McMahon drove five hours one way.  What a commitment!
The show and tell started with Dom Custable and a document box he made.

Ed Bouvier discussed the riving and building of his saw. 

Bill Zeman showed the tray he built with wood from his scrap box. [I could use the wood from his scrap box.] He also offered a challenge to others to do the same. If you think about it, many of us have small pieces of wood that are too good to discard!
