From twisted to flat and square

twisted

Don’t toss that twisted piece of hardwood into the fireplace! During March’s meeting this Wednesday the 21st, Steve Voorhies will demonstrate and explain how to turn it into a flat, square, and evenly thicknessed board.  The meeting starts at 7PM in Steve’s shop at 3190 #1 Canyon Drive, Wenatchee.

And Jeff Dilks is providing yet another beautiful board for this week’s door prize:  “Big leaf maple burl.  Burl, a little curl, and a little spalt. Flat and stable, since it’s probably been in my shop for 15 years.  15 1/2″ x 9″ x 1 1/4″ thick.  Sanded to a very coarse grit so the figure doesn’t really shine in this photo,” he said. Thank you, Jeff.
