March Events:

 

March 21, 2015

Monthly Meeting

Woodworking Education Center Maylene, AL

 

900am Pre-Meeting

This month's Mentoring Series Pre-Meeting will feature the incomparable Pat Bush. Pat will guide us along his journey to create the perfect project board using the functions of the power planer and joiner. He will  address the basics including: safety, unique purpose of each tool, how to use the joiner to edge and flatten, how to use the planer to cut down to the desired thickness, and he has even agreed to share a few personally developed tricks and techniques.

1000am - Meeting

 

The March AWG program will feature tips and demonstrations by Michael Malinconico on how your computer can be a very useful tool in your shop.

Many of us use computers for e-mail, electronic banking, balancing our checkbooks, ordering tools on-line, etc. But, not many of us use the capabilities of our computers to help us with our woodworking projects. The March program will show you how easy, and useful, this can be. It will demonstrate the use of:

CAD programs to explore different design ideas, plan a project and create printed plans and cut-lists that can be taken to the shop or lumber dealer;

Spreadsheet programs to ensure that parts fit together properly; AND

To create cut-lists

To allow you to revise a project's dimensions and cut lists in the (unlikely) event of a cutting error ;-)
