Proposed AGENDA – Fall Meeting

SATURDAY, August 29, 2015

1. Open doors at 10:00am
Arrive, relax, have some coffee

2. Introductions and Show & Tell, 11:00am – 12:00pm
The “show and tell” is an ice breaker.  Please bring anything you would like to show off.  If you have a special piece, a project or even a jig, please bring them.  For those who haven’t attended a previous meeting, this is a quick introduction, a display of your skills, interests, projects both past and present, jig, etc. It can even be a request for help in a particular area. After we go around the room, we will break for 30 min. During this break, you can seek out the other members who have similar interest and/or have already built a project/jig you want to build. This break will give you the opportunity to meet and establish a new friendship, pick their brains, and continue communicating with them after the meeting. This is extremely helpful for highly specialized niches, like inlays, marquetry, carving, Bombay chest, etc.

a) Introductions and Show & Tell, 11:00 - 11:30am
   Name, where you live, your past and present projects, classes, and/or your particular interest and your Show & Tell item if you brought one. …

b) Break to discuss Show & Tell one-on-one, 11:30am-12:00pm
   Also, we will have another swap meet.  If you have got something to sell or trade, please bring it. 

3. Lunch, 12:00 – 1:00pm
   We will be getting a Subways Party Sub.
4. Demonstrations
a) Design lessons for an 18th century apprentice by George Walker, 1:00 – 5:00pm
