David stated that Rockler is having a 25% off on their wood. Only a few days including this weekend.  
Preston and Beverly Vikery brought some left over vinal from their work projects.  This was given to the members free of charge.   They will bring more next month.  I am challenging you all to see what projects we can do with the vinyl.  Last month, Harmon cut key chains from vinyl.

Jo Ann  showed her Star of David designed by Timberlace, cut in from Corian.   She also showed her combination of angels and crosses in ornament sizes.
David Atkins   cut a picture of a lion with a self made frame –Charles Hand design.   Very nice.
Bob Mccary   showed us his carved nativity set that is already spoken for by members of his senior citizen center.  (2)  he also showed his carving of an Indian. Grover Pierce cut a Timberlace butterfly cross which includes 3D butterflies that were cut and glued to the cross.  This adds a lot of dimension to the project.     (2) car with wheels –painted 
David Borg brought his collection of carved dragons painted and stained. David likes doing dragons because no one can tell him that his project is done wrong.   That’s is a good one Bobby Riggs   brought his sign that includes dog paws. Bobby said this plaque is a good seller
(2) Plaque showing love with paws over tie dyed fabric. Very nice and colorful
(3) Christmas trees using Christmas fabric.  Artificial flowers are artfully glued to the project.
(4) Puzzles pelicans,  whales, and dolphins.   
(5) small dog cut outs with birch ply. He said these sell very well
Faye Benezue brought her cutting of a dog silhouette.  
(2) 3 D Scottie dog from the animal pattern book.   Always cute.  
(3) Small rooster brightly painted
I want to thank all those who brought brag items.   Fun part of our meeting.
Harmon brought a peg board screen.  He used the peg board that is white on one side. Harmon and his wife, Billie use these  peg boards to show off their sale items at craft shows.   Very easy to set up and use throughout the show.   He also uses a strip of a board on the top to stabilize the screen.  
Thank  you Harmon.
