Last meeting of the year. We are going to meet a woodcarver located right here in Brevard. We are also voting on the funds raised at the sharpening event. I also want to wish every one a happy holiday and to be safe in your travels.

Stone Mountain Cabinetry Tour, Robert Grieves,the owner, has designed a shop from the bottom to the top. Saving steps with machine layout to reclaiming wasted heat. It is great to get ideas for my own shop. Great Tour.
We will have a vote on what to do with the money from the turning event at the November meeting because we did not have a quorum in October . It was suggested that we donate $500.00 to the student scholarship fund and $500.00 to the CF employee fund, totaling $1000.00 leaving the club treasury at $696.00 for future projects. Open discussion before voting.
President in training, Scott Kuba
Woodcrafters will meet Wednesday, November 15th at 1:00 in the Blue Ridge Lounge for our regular business meeting. Visitors and prospective members are welcome. Afterward, we will carpool to Chuck Kidwell’s shop on Broad Street in Brevard. Chuck does fine wood carvings in the Broad Street storefront studio he shares with his wife, Deborah (Please google "ARTWorksBrevardNC"). Chuck started carving in the 80’s. He’s sold his works from Florida to Maine. He’s been a handyman, a pattern maker in industrial iron castings, has designed new products and made prototypes and has worked in art bronze sculpture casting. Chuck works carves in the round and in different styles of relief using a variety of wood species.

To start, we had a great day at the sharpening event and collected over $700.00 in donations. That said, we will have a vote on what to do with the money. It was suggested that we donate $500.00 to the student scholarship fund and $500.00 to the CF employee fund, totaling $1000.00 leaving the club treasury at $696.00 for future projects.
After the vote:
CF Woodcrafters will have a meeting on October 18, 2017 starting with a business meeting at 1:00 in the Blue Ridge lounge in the clubhouse. We will then drive to the new production facility for Stone Mountain Cabinetry, 206 Vista Blvd., Arden, NC 28704 for a tour of their facility and demonstration of their new automated woodworking equipment. Directions will be provided at the meeting (GPS can be misleading). This will take all afternoon, so plan for extra time.

Our club had a great Fund raising event. All the members that turned out to help, worked as a well oiled machine and we did the community a fine service. Thanks to all that came out to help. I admit that I messed up. We had salad and pizza for lunch but I forgot the chocolate chip cookies. Sorry for my error!!!! LOL

There is no charge for this service, but donations will be appreciated. This is the only sharpening event scheduled for this year. We will sharpen garden and landscaping tools, scissors, kitchen knives, chisels, hand plane blades and chain saws (chains off bar), but not circular or hand saws.

I am checking with the membership, We are scheduled to have a Sharpening fund raiser at the Atagahi Pavilion Wednesday September 27th (4th Wednesday). Three key people are gone. We have to have worker to run the event. It runs from 8am to 4 pm.
If you can help, Please Email back your name–phone–and times you can work.
If we do not have the workers, we cannot hold the Event.
A note from you President. I am sorry for being so late with minutes.
July we did not have a meeting, but we gathered at David Petit’s Shop in Rosman.
It is great to see a small shop with all the bells and whistles(special machinery) to construct custom kitchen cabinets. Right down to a finishing department that puts out first class custom finishes. You don’t have to big to do it right. Just like I have seen with many of our members projects.
August, we had our annual picnic. If you have never attended, we had tools to swap or buy. Pictures and examples of members project and the members showing them off. Great work. The best part was sitting around and talking with all the guest and members. We have a great group and I am hoping to get to know everyone. Life only get better when you build friendships.. Thank to everyone that came out.
One of the best things I did, was to say yes to being your President Scott Kuba
I hope the images forward. Bob Speight is heading a white squirrel committee to make wood squirrels for the pumpkin patch event at Silvermont. Anyone interested please contact Bob and let him know how many squirrels you could make. The image attached is a template and a letter explaining how to make the white squirrel. If we get a good response, 2 or 3 could make the difference.
