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
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.
