    Spinning Spoons


    This month we have a special treat. Shann Galuza, our President, will share a demonstration on how he makes a wooden spoon.  The complete spoon is turned in one piece, after gluing up contrasting woods to form the blank.  You won't want to miss this one.


    You must register to get the login information. If you haven't used Zoom before or are having problems with your connections, contact Chris Smith at webmaster@norcalwoodturners.org or call (916) 712-6979.

    Unfortunately we still can't meet in person but that doesn't mean we can't enjoy some Holiday cheer.  Your Board has come up with a great way to continue our tradition of having a Holiday Gift Exchange.


    As usual, we'd like you to turn something nice as a gift for another member.  There will be several drop-off places for you to deliver the gift BY DECEMBER 6TH.  Include your name and address with the gift please.  We'll do a random drawing from all who participate and then mail you something made by one of the other Nor-Cal members. 


    On Tuesday, December 15th at 6:00 pm we'll do a Zoom meeting and have people open their gifts and show what they got.  Please register by clicking on the link on the left so we can email you the Zoom login info.  You don't need to make a gift to join the Zoom meeting but you'll have more fun if you do!


    I know some of you newer turners may be thinking you can't make something good enough to participate but please don't think that way.  Whatever you do it shows you care about wood turning and will be appreciated by whoever receives it. 


    In these crazy times we all need some good cheer so please participate by making something and bringing it to one of our drop-off spots by December 6th:
