    What is it - In an effort to raise awareness and thank America’s Veterans, Rockler Woodworking & Hardware will be holding a special one-day event in all retail locations on November 9th, 2019.  This is the second year Rockler has held this event. Turning participants are charged a $10 fee with proceeds being donated to National Veterans Foundation. Last year there were just under 550 participated.

    For Details on the event click on FY2020 Vets Day.

    NWWT's Role - NWWT has offered to provide help at this AAW supported national event.  What is needed is 1 or 2 people for each of the 4 classes.  Rockler will have 4 lathes running.  Your job is to explain or demonstrate the basics of making a pen and then assist the students in making a pen.

    Requirements – You do not have to be a full time pen turner but do need to have made a few pens and understand the process and are willing to work with a novice turner.

    Class length: 2 HRS – Classes at 9:30AM, 11:30AM, 1:30PM, & 3:30PM

    Please respond to me ASAP with your willingness to help and preferred times.  You can sign up for multiple times if you want.   Plan to arrive 30 minutes before your shift.

    As part of our community service charter, we sometimes get requests for help.  These jobs are between you and the requestor.  You negotiate a price, specs, delivery with the requestor.

    Note: Remember no meeting this July 4th.  Next meeting is the August Picnic/Auction.

    =========================================

    Hello -- I'm writing in hope that a small project might be acceptable to you. 

    We have a broken baluster that we need to replace. A photo is attached. 

    It is 32 inches long,  1-1/2 inches square. It is in the staircase in our home, which dates from 1968. I haven’t been able to find any balusters for sale that match this design. I will be happy to mail it to you if we can do business. 

    We understand that the set-up for reproducing a shape like this can be somewhat costly. If you can do it, what do you charge? 

    We think the balusters are made of fir. Poplar or similar would be quite all right with us.

    If you make a replacement, can you also match the finish? 

    Many thanks for any advice and information you can provide. We are very hopeful that you will be able to help us. 

    Regards, Kate Fuller, 820 NW 19th Street, McMinnville, Oregon. 97128
