As you have heard by now, our September meeting will not be in person, but will be on Zoom again as we have done for the past 14 months. And that’s OK. After much discussion, we felt that was the wise course of action at this moment in time. But we are optimistic about that changing soon. In the meantime, our meetings will continue.
It is interesting to note that we converted to Zoom for our meetings out of necessity. That remote attendance opportunity has attracted many new members as we continue to grow. When we do resume in person meetings, we will continue to provide a simultaneous streaming experience for those who cannot be in-person. We began testing some new equipment last week to enhance our capabilities for doing that.
Our September meeting will be a great discussion by Andy Wilkerson on how to plan and keep a project on schedule and on budget. We have all struggled with the issue of translating our ideas for a project into a finished piece. Andy is an entertaining and excellent presenter and a superb woodworker who has created many beautiful pieces from simple boxes to complex high quality furniture. The common denominator in all these projects is how to plan to get it done and importantly how to execute in an organized fashion. In addition to his many excellent pieces of work, Andy has been a regular at instruction classes and workshops from nationally recognized woodworking pros. He brings those learnings to his vision for executing a project. Please join us in September.
I hope to see you at a meeting soon.
