Our May meeting was held at Herzog Veneer in High Point.

We were brought up-to-date on the new brochure, which has now been printed.  Please notify Jim Davis if you would like a copy or know of a shop/gallery/woodworking store in your area that would be a good place to display them.  Charlie Brown will bring some copies to our July meeting.

The Klingspor Woodworking show will be held this year on October 27 and 28 in Hickory.  We will continue discussion about our participation.

Also, it is time to begin thinking about entering a picture in competition at the NC State Fair in October.  More discussion on this at a later meeting also.


Charlie Brown presented a very informative demonstration of doing the compass rose pattern.

OF NOTE:  Al Spicer’s table of many, many pieces was featured in the March-April issue of Fine Woodworking.

As shown in the box above, our next meeting will be at Sauers Veneer in Lexington on July 29.  As always, the meeting will get underway with refreshments at 10:00 am and a short business meeting.  After the business, Bob Moffett of the Chapel Hill Woodturners will give a demonstration of the Lictenburg Process.  Although primarily for wood turning projects, we hope to be able to adapt it to marquetry.  We will have lunch at one of the nearby barbecue places and upon our return,  we all get to enter the “candy store” and shop for veneer!  Larry always has lots of interesting items for us to choose from.  He has told me he has lots of new items, so be prepared!   If you want a particular veneer, please let me know by July 15 and I’ll pass that along.  If it is available, he will pull some out for us.
