August 19. Meeting/Program

The program for the August 19 Chippers meeting will be a carving project: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles..., or turtles, anyway.  You will receive a basswood turtle blank.  The shell will be an oval 4" by 3" by 3/4".  The mutant part is that you may design and carve anything you want on the shell: realistic, chip carved rosette or pattern, kolrosed flower or picture, a labyrinth or maze.  Bore a hole in the center and make a candle stick.  Or make it hollow instead of rounded and make a shallow coin or jewelry dish.  ...Alter the shell and make it asymmetric.  With this notice you are receiving a full size pattern which you may use to do some design work before you come.  Bring your tools so you can get right to work!

This month's meeting (Tuesday June 17) will be a carving session.  Bring a project to work on, something for show-and-tell, and anything else you can think of - questions about projects, extra tools or wood to sell, trade or give, information on carving events, etc.  How about ideas for July.

April 15 meeting/program

April 15th Meeting

With your taxes done, come to the April meeting with your carving tools and John Beach will show you how to create houses of cottonwood bark. No tools? I'm sure someone will share. Cottonwood bark will be provided. No excuses. Come and create your own bark house. Paul will try to make one without a beard and mustache.

Mark your calendars. 

Planning is underway for a woodcarving show at the Whetstone Community Center on Saturday, November 1.

Carve on!

FEBRUARY 18, Meeting

February 18 Meeting

Cora Hursey will show and tell us about her vintage and carved rolling pins.  If you have any of these yourself, be sure to bring them along to add to the discussion. Of course, bring along your normal show and tell items as well.

N.B. Club dues are now due.  For those who missed the January meeting, we voted to return to our previous level of $15.00 per year in order to offset at least some of the increased cost of club insurance.

Laura and Joseph are working on a Columbus Chippers Facebook page. They will help us facebook newbies navigate the site at the March meeting. Let them know if you have any questions or suggestions.

The dates for us to demo at the State Fair are July 25, 26 and 27.  Some of you signed up last month. Let Paul know if you are interested in doing this.

I hope you all are staying warm.  Spring is just around the corner.
