    Chainsaw Use and Safety


    Each month on the 4th Tuesday at 6:30 pm we have a monthly meeting (except November and December).  For September we'll have Manny Goulart from Stihl talking with us about chainsaw use and safety. 


    We'll also have "show and tell" where members share what they have been working on and plenty of wood for you to pickup from our Wood Gathering Crew.


    We'll be meeting at the VFW Hall and also attempting to Zoom out the meeting to those who can't make it.  The Zoom login information will be emailed to all active members.  Please call or email Chris Smith at smithinsac@gmail.com BEFORE the meeting day if you haven't received the link.

    Nor-Cal Woodturners has received approval to conduct member workshops at Palmiter School woodturning shop. These workshops are an opportunity to acquaint members with the school facilities and provide continuing education in basic woodturning skills for the members. Hopefully, after training, members will consider volunteering as coaches in the youth training program we have successfully conducted at the school for 11 years.


    The projects will start with easy spindle turnings and progress to more complex ones. There are 8 fully equipped work stations and all supplies will be provided.


    Besides Nor-Cal member/learners, we will need volunteer instructors and helpers. Please contact Ted Young at 916-574-9117 if you can help.


    The classes will be held on Tuesday evenings a week after general membership meetings. A tentative schedule has been developed:

    • October 4th - Platter
    • November 1st - Square Bowl
    • November 29th - Winged Bowl

    The program can be expanded to more days per month if there is interest.

    Making Your Own Pen Blanks


    Each month on the 4th Tuesday at 6:30 pm we have a monthly meeting (except November and December).  We have "show and tell" where members share what they have been working on. There is also plenty of good company.


    This month's demonstration is by Jeremy Pfiester:


    My name is Jeremy Pfiester. I am the owner of Grateful Pop where we specialize in gathering many wild seeds, cones, pods and weeds and cast them in colorful resin to create our beautiful Wild Things Pen Blanks. I plan to share some of the techniques we use when working with plants, producing vibrant colors, adding light effects, and hopefully answer the questions and excite you to make your own Wild Things. Thank you all for this wonderful opportunity and will be seeing you all soon.

    Holiday Party

    We'll be meeting at the Veteran's Hall to share some holiday cheer on Tuesday, December 13th at 6:30 pm.


    As usual, we'll have our gift exchange. Please bring something you turned yourself (or bring 2 if your spouse is coming). For those who haven't participated before, don't be intimidated. It doesn't need to be an incredible piece of art, just something nice you made, no matter your skill level. You don't need to wrap it, each turning will be placed in a gift bag. Gifts are not required, but it makes it more fun if you bring something.


    We'll be sharing some coffee, treats (cupcakes?) and there will be plenty of time to chat and catch up with each other. 


    PLEASE REGISTER SO WE KNOW HOW MANY TREATS TO BRING, THANKS
