Following our break Cindy and Mark gave their demonstration on specialty tools and their uses. As we all know there is an endless supply of specialty tools available to do a myriad of task in wood turning.
Our show and tell tonight was jugs and tips and several of our members brought in the jigs and devices that they have made and use in their turning projects. Thanks to everyone who participated, it is always fun to see what people come up with to solve problems and make tasks easier or more effective.
