August Guild Meeting: Saturday, August 17th, 2019

General Membership meeting for August will be Saturday, August 17th.

8:00am-9:00am SketchUp Class
This month the SketchUp Workshop will focus on the basics of SketchUp, drawing simple boxes and discussing how to move them in a 3D environment.

9:00am-10:00am Special Auction
We have three band saws, two drill presses, other equipment and wood to auction off this Saturday. Since we were surprised by a donation of new equipment from a patron of the Guild, the old stuff has to go to make room. You are all familiar with this equipment, it has been in use at the Guild for quite a while. So here is your chance for an addition to your shop you have been waiting for!

10am-12noon General Meeting
This month's program will feature Terrence James. Terrence will talk about the care and use of various types of hand planes.

As always visitors are welcome, so bring a friend.
