Five lathes will be set up and after the demonstrations, members will be able to sharpen any tools they bring and practice their turning skills.

Christmas Banquet, December 16

Twenty seven members and guests enjoyed an evening of good food and good fellowship at The Fruits of Labor restaurant in Rainelle, and nine displayed some of their favorite 2016 turnings. In addition to enjoying excellent food, we know that supporting Fruits of Labor means far more than buying a delicious meal – it is a personal, tangible investment in the growth and nurturing of people in our own community and across the state who demonstrate the daily courage it takes to overcome addiction.

Show and Tell

Twelve Club members submitted pepper mills for the Club Challenge and eight displayed turnings for Show and Tell. Apologies to all the members who participated - the Webmaster is in Australia but his notes listing the turnings and who created them are in West Virginia so there are no captions describing the turnings or listing names.
