May Meeting Cancelled

In keeping with the Covid-19 guidelines, the May meeting is cancelled.  We hope to be able to be together soon.  Stay tuned here and to the Newsletter, Splinters, for updates.

The Club’s YouTube Channel

The address for the Club’s Channel is:  https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCCBMvw434qQ5ND7wjeWat3w/  .  Webmaster, Richard Gulley, will upload videos from the Club’s Video Library from time to time to help bridge the gap until we can meet again and have our regular programs.  The May addition features the late Jim VanCleave of Tullahoma discussing String Inlay and a tour of his home showing some of his furniture creations.  See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dirKgm8YSKo&t=119s

Security issue

Members are getting fake emails from someone claiming they need help from you.  Typical:  “I need a favor from you. I’d appreciate if you could email me back asap.  Thanks”.   If you get something like this, don’t reply.  If you know who they’re pretending to be, check through an alternate path to see if it may be genuine.

Happy 35th Anniversary

The year 2020 marks the 35th for the Tennessee Valley Woodworker club.  We thought we would reminisce a little and show how the Club got it’s beginning back in the fall of 1985, so we put a short video on YouTube.  The video is a shortened version of a 2010 production for the Quarter Century celebration we had then.
