Summer's over - come join us at Whetstone Community Center at 6pm on Tuesday, September 16th! We will learn how to draw using the 'right brain, left brain' theory. Members are asked to bring a couple of sharpened pencils and their willingness to try something new. Should be fun and interesting.

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!

June 17, Meeting
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.
See you there.

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.
