Announcements:

Craig Mason made an announcement about some wood turning catalogs available to members and some turning courses available. Contact Craig for info on these items.

The club increased its membership by 2 new members that evening. The club would like to welcome Andy Cole and Dick Hewel.

Note to new members: I forgot to tell the new members that our chapter By-Laws require "all local chapter members are current paid-up members of the (national organization) AAW". If you need an application form contact me at our next meeting or call/e-mail me and I can mail you one.

Program: Ron Kent started the meeting by introducing himself and showing some slides of his work. He continued the next portion by talking about his ideas on design and his philosophy on wood turning. He moved on to demonstrating his techniques on chucking and hollowing his vessels. Closing, he answered questions and spoke on his philosophy about pricing and selling work.

Challenge: The challenge for the September 12 meeting was open.

Challenge ~ Open
  1st Ed Potter Cuban mahogany sun and moon platter
  2nd Uwe Dost milo platter with bowl
  3rd Tom Young buckeye bowl
       
Instant Gallery:
    Ed Potter brought in a nice koa hollow form but decided to enter it into the next challenge
       
November 14 challenge will be a hollow form. There were two definitions of hollow form given that evening so the members decided that the members voting will decide if the piece would be considered hollow.

Honolulu Woodturners 2001 meeting schedule:
       November 14 6:00 p.m.

Meeting adjourned at 8:50 p.m.
