                                               Welcome to Strait Turners                           

                 Our woodturning group is committed to the advancement of woodturning.

     Join us for our next meeting October 31, 9:30 AM at the Gardiner Community Center.

       Russ Neiman will be the presenter and he will be discussing CA Glue uses and Finish Polishing

      " I've been a woodworker for almost 50 years and "discovered" woodturning about 15 years ago, and have
       progressed to the point where my work is displayed in several galleries and has won several awards. I just
       ended a three-and-a-half term as President of the Olympic Peninsula Woodturners and continue to do my
       part to advance the craft through the Northwest Woodturners' Alliance.

       Teaching newcomers the basics is a joy and I often have students visiting my shop in Port Orchard, where
       I also live. I have presented other live demonstrations, including "Fifty Nifty Shop Tips," "Cracks,
       Dings, & Lemonade," and "Easy Embellishments" throughout the Western United States.

       CA is found in every woodturner's shop, but it is often under-utilized and mis-used. Besides a glue, it
       can be employed as a finish and a wood stabilized. We will discuss a number of methods of application,
       including spraying it on.

       It's hard to discuss cyanoacrylate finishes without the obvious follow-up: wood finish polishing. I will bring
       my Beall System and offer a number of ways to utilize it, both as a way to enhance finishes (CA and lacquer,
       especially) and as a stand-alone process".

          We will be having a show and tell along with a raffle at this meeting.

          A wood auction is planned for this meeting.

     The Gardiner Community Center is located at 980  Old Gardiner Road Sequim.  The GCC is located 10 miles
     east of downtown Sequim on RT 101.  The easiest way to get there is take a left off of RT 101 as if you were going
     to Diamond Pt. Rd, stay in the center lane and take a left onto Old Gardiner Rd. Go down Old Gardiner Rd &    
     the GCC is on the right.  Park in the upper lot and use the rear entrance.
Please park in the designated parking    
     spaces only,  if all the spaces are full, please use the church parking lot next door for overflow parking.
