February 2009 Meeting: Walpole Woodworking

This night we had three new members with us, including two ladies. Our guest speaker was Bill Lowell, of Walpole Woodworking.  Bill gave us a slide presentation and spoke about his company which primarily builds cedar fencing, outdoor furnishing, custom period railings and of the like. Bill is very knowledgeable about his company. Walpole has a work force of 500 employees in the height of their season, and is based out of Massachusetts.  The bulk of production is in Maine. 

Bob Masterson discussed a problem of drilling a straight hole through a 18” long block of cocobolo. With over 10 members suggestions, we’ll see the outcome next month.

Bill Woodard was able to show his shop of the month again, as time was limited last meeting.  Bill is building a kayak from cedar wood and fiberglass in his basement.  Bill has been added to our Members Gallery with a number of beautiful furniture pieces he has built over the years. Check him out, as Bill is a very skillful woodworker.  I’m sure we’ll soon have pictures of the finished boat and Bill kayaking off the coast of Anchorage!

Thanks to Mihail for providing a banquet for our break!

Our main speaker was Marc Gaertner who discussed table saw tuning.  Ray Wendrzycki  gave us some tips about the power mortiser, and Stewart Moore discussed bandsaw alignment.  Shop of the month was Bill Woodard. Jeff mentioned The Woodworking Show in Somerset next month, and we settled on the rules for the stack of wood competition.
