Monthly Meeting

Woodworking Education Center Maylene, AL


900am Pre-Meeting

The August Mentoring Series promises to be quite a treat with a "two fer"!  The award winning and dynamic duo of Buzz and Nelda Kelly will share tips, tricks and how to’s of applying string inlay to your own projects.

The Kellys have studied under Steve Latt at the Marc Adams Woodworking School , considered as the premier woodworking school in North Ameri-ca. They will be presenting how to create the void and inlaying the wooden ‘string’ in either straight or curved configurations in your piece. The discus-sion will include using a Dremel tool with a ‘Stewart McDonald’ base and some of the different fence options. They will also share how to trim the ‘string’ flush with the surface.


1000am - Meeting


The August Main Program will feature our own President Ray Ziegler. Ray was a recipient of a Scholarship Award last year as part of the Alabama Woodworkers Guild Scholarship

Program to attend an educational seminar on the Rob Cosman method for cutting dovetails. Ray will be presenting and demonstrating his newly honed Cosman techniques.

Ray has unplugged and put away or given away his power tools, preferring now to truly work with his hands and his ever growing collection of hand tools. As you can see from his photo, he really likes to make ‘ribbons’ and enjoys sharing his experiences (mistakes) to help others enjoy hand tool woodworking.
