April 2011

  On April 16, the West Michigan Wood Turners met in the new  Portage Northern High School shop.  At 9:30, the members the members discussed their new projects over coffee.  The official meeting followed at 10:10, the major items discussed were:
  • There was a discussion of the guest turner this fall and his offer for a hands on demonstration on Friday before the club meeting.  Before the members could commit, several questions were raised concerning the avialable facilities.
  • There was good deal of interest in the Saturday demonstration.
  • There was a mention of the relationship between Osage-Orange and Mulberry; it was concluded that they both belong to the mulberry famaily but are different genea and species. 
  • There was some discussion of this summer's Heartwick Pines program and the club's participation.
