Visitors introduced themselves.  Bryce Branham, who was a past member was present.

Minutes: Faye stated that if any changes needed to be made on the 7-31-21 minutes as appearing on the website, please contact Jo Ann

Treasurer:  Lavern gave the treasurer report.

Old Business:   Last month the club voted for us to get tables at the Three River Carver Show in Cleburne in September.   Jo Ann stated that she filled out the wrong form which was actually for Vendors such as Wood, or tool vendors.  We are the first club that has ever asked for tables. We are not able to have saw demos, just brag tables that also allow us to sell our items. The cost is $15 per table and $25.00 per person.  Once you have paid the $25, it allows you to sell, show or enter the contest.   After discussion, the club agreed that we would still have tables and Faye and Jo Ann will man the tables.  Harmon may come later to join us.  Jo Ann will get with the Carver Show to confirm our reservation.

FUTURE MEETINGS
JO Ann explained to the new members that we skip the November meeting due to the holidays and the December meeting will be earlier in the month.

December 11,2021 for our Christmas meeting and gathering at the church.  This will include a pot luck breakfast, drinks and coffee.   We will not have a demo at this meeting which gives us time to visit.   We also need to bring plenty of brag items for us to enjoy.

ASK THE EXPERTS
David Borg finished his carving with car wax and suggested for him to use a stencil brush.  Faye explained what a stencil brush was and where to get it. I advised that Herm put wax in a sock and applied several coats to his projects.  This gave a furniture gloss finish but did not allow the wax to get into the fretwork holes.

I asked the recipe for making mineral oil and bees wax finish product.  Virgil stated go to Toymakers plans and check out nontoxic toy finish.  Virgil uses a hand buff for finishing.

Cynthia stated she used very small hinges on a box for her niece.  She had problems getting the nails to attach.  It was suggested to dip the nail head in CA glue before putting them in the hinge.  This help hold them in place after they dry.

BRAG ITEMS
David cut a celtic design from paduka wood.   2 hearts intertwined in infinity.
(2) he cut 2 angels with different wings.   He used acrylic paints to enhance the projects
(3) He carved 2 figures of men in a tree.  He painted and discussed how to shadow his paint.

Eddie Warren cut Steve Good’s military patterns.  Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine

Bob McCary cut boxes to hold carved Christmas ornaments –Very Nice
