May 10, 2014 Meeting at Al Spicer’s Shop

Our next meeting will be at Al Spicer’s shop on May 10, 2014, starting at 10 a.m..  He will be demonstrating the Marquetry Donkey, a.k.a. Chevalet, French Horse, chevalet de marquetrie.  Al says that there will be an opportunity for anyone who wants to try it to do so.  Al will also be demonstrating inlaying oval stringers.  Since he does not live near any restaurants that can handle our group, we ask that everyone bring their own picnic lunch.  The club will provide drinks and ice for the lunch as well as the morning refreshments.  If you have a folding chair, you might put it in, just in case we have a large number of members present.

Also at this meeting, we will have several items for sale.  Danny Wylie, the son of Bob Wylie, who died several years ago has some of his father’s marquetry supplies that he wants to sell.  John Robinson has them and will bring them to the meeting.  I will try to send out a list of what will be available a little closer to meeting time, so that everyone who may be interested can be prepared with some cash money.  If anyone else has an item or two that they would like to sell or give away, please feel free to bring it to the meeting as well.
