CJWA meeting April 2018

For the April 11th meeting, our guest speaker will be the acclaimed Furniture Maker Chuck Bender. He will be presenting an instructional seminar on how to get started carving wood for furniture.

For those of you who may not be familiar with Chuck and his decades of accomplishments check out this link to his bio when he was with 360Woodworking.

Currently Chuck has restarted his Acanthus Workshop where he offers “Handmade, museum quality furniture” which is “painstakingly built from the best figured lumber available for a limited number of clients each year.” He is also offering classes starting with a basics class - Woodworking Fundamentals, then moving into Inlay, Spice Boxes and Carving for Furniture Makers to name but a few. Follow this link for more details on his classes. 

Having personally seen Chuck present in the past I know this is going to be a very informative, engaging and entertaining evening. This is one meeting you don’t want to miss, so mark your calendar for this coming Wednesday April 11th starting at 7:00 PM.

If time allows William Duffield will be presenting this month’s “Mini Fundamentals” where he will talk about fundamentals of securing your work.

Hope to see everyone there.
