    Steve Hoffmann and Jeff Clunie are making preparations to run a workshop project this Fall for guild members. The intent is to provide a program where new members can get to meet each other as well as some long-time members over a course of a few weeks and to work alongside them, learn new skills, share experiences and make nice projects to bring home.

    It is anticipated that the workshops will be held during the day on weekdays, however, the location, time and other specifics will be determined once we have an idea of the number of people interested, their demography, availability, skill level, access to tools, etc.

    Three different projects are being considered:

    1. an articulated wooden toy dinosaur based on the book Animated Animal Toys in Woodby by David Wakefield

    2. a wavy cutting board based on the Fine Woodworking article “A Unique Cutting Board” by Scott Lewis (May/June 2013 issue # pages 68 – 73).

    3. a Shaker Stool (either a foot stool or a utility stool) with woven Shaker tape adapted from the books Shop Drawings of Shaker Furniture and Woodenware by Ejner Hanberg, Chairmaking Simplified by Kerry Pierce, and The Book of Shaker Furniture by John Kassay. (There is no need to purchase any of these books or magazines).

    If you would like to learn more about these projects click EMGW Project 2022.  You may also contact either Steve or Jeff to register your interest or ask questions.

    Pet Peeves

    by Andrew Davis

    There is no shortage of pet peeves for most of us.  Yet in such a personal activity like woodworking, especially those who work alone in their woodshop cave, there is no one else to complain to or about.  For example, when you can't find the tool you are looking for, there's no one else to blame.  But that doesn't stop Andrew from forming a list of his best woodworking pet peeves in this month's Bevel Cut article Pet Peeves Send your favorite woodworking pet peeve to Andrew.  Tell him he is not alone.  Let the pet peeves roll.

    This will be the last article before we resume formal activities in September.  All articles this year will be made accessible via the archive later this summer.  Thanks go to Andrew for his continuous supply of imaginative, comical, and succinct articles that lighten our day.
