LOVES Wooden Canoes
Our newly-formed Western PA Chapter will meet on Saturday, February 11, 2006 from 9:30 A.M. to around 12:30. The meeting will be held at the Max Woodworking Shop, 1000 Transit Blvd., Bethel Industrial Park, Bethel Park, PA 15102 (412) 831-7066. Call or e-mail max@maxwoodworking.com for driving directions, or other information. Joe Ballay will coordinate a session on steam bending with the help of Paul Knuth, Bill Conrad, and others including your host. Paul will bring a gunwale form for demonstration and we will address rib bending as well. Other items on the agenda will include: Choosing a name for our new chapter, planning future events, and soliciting volunteers for specific tasks. Our setting is an active, professional wood shop with concrete floors. Dress accordingly. We do have a sufficient number of folding chairs. The steam box will be fired up early as will the coffee pot. We look forward to an informative session and lively discussion.
