- Mary Kafes will discuss some details and lessons learned in building her first Pennsylvania tall case clock (a Lonnie Bird design shown in Fine Woodworking issues 151 and 152).
- Having been inspired by the presentation at our mid-year conference, we'll have some fun with sulfur inlay of some interesting details; the type of thing that will start the story, or reputation associated with your clock.
- Your discussion/presentation. This chapter needs your help in making the meeting a good learning experience, so let me know in the next two weeks what you'd like to offer. The topic can be on any type of clock case.
