TENNESSEE VALLEY WOODWORKERS

Meeting May 21st, 2024

 

Meeting called to order by Jim Jolliffe at 6:30pm.

Visiting Guests:  Noah Stanley, Glenn Bennett, John Randles

New Business: Paul Credle, longtime TVW Member, donated his entire wood shop to the Club!  We will move it to Jim Jolliffe’s storage area for pricing and sale.  The plan is to have a TVW “members only” preview & sale.  It will be determined after that sale if we should then have a public sale (on a later date close to the “members only” sale).  Following those sales, any remaining tools may be offered at the Club Auction in August and/or the Club Tool & Craft Sale the last Saturday in October (Oct 26th).

Chuck Taylor showed a segmented/angled cutting board he made out of Oak, Maple, Walnut, and Cherry and finished with Linseed Oil and Tried and True.
