April 2009 meeting: Glen Guarino

Our meeting was opened by Jeff Brown with 3 new members. Jeff announced that Todd Gleason has volunteered his time and shop to cut 200 bird houses and feeders for our fund raiser. We still need volunteers to assemble.  The club will be selling its wares at the Marlboro Community Day in May. 

This evening's speaker is Glen Guarino, of Guarino Furniture Designs. Glenn is a one of a kind furniture maker.  His topic was his method of designing furniture. He explained the steps he takes from the idea to drawing the piece in sections to determine the most pleasing design. Glen brought 2 tables with him which were very unique and quite beautiful. I would say his work falls between contemporary and Asian. A retired shop teacher, Glen has been building his pieces for over 30 years and leaves no doubt he is very talented. His work has been selected for 500 Tables, published by Lark Books, and has had numerous articles in magazines including Fine Woodworker.  We appreciate his time and his willingness to share his skills with us. The topic was very interesting, well prepared and presented. Many thanks to Glen.
