Come meet Bill McCracken
Bill is one of our most dedicated and talented woodworkers at the shop. His interests vary from hand tools to CNC work, Bill truly covers the gambit of woodworking. Bill has been hosting a Wednesday Morning retreat were he has taught many different subjects and made some interesting projects.
We are lucky that Bill has agreed to hold a series of demonstrations on the weekends for those of us who cannot attend his Wednesday morning classes. These demonstrations will begin at 9am and last from 1 to 2 hours. These are at no cost and are open to members and visitors alike.

Nov 8th ——How to make a Band Saw Box.
Nov 21st —–How to use a Hand Plane to pep wood.

Plan to attend, I promise you will not be disappointed.
My first Lunch and Learn at 10:30 am till 12:00pm Saturday May 16th (Sloppy Joes and Chips provided at no charge). Members and interested friends are encouraged to attend at no charge. The subject will be:
An Introduction to CNC (Computer Numeric Controlled) Router (Your imagination is your only limitation)
We will discuss the mechanics of CNC routers (i.e. x,y,z axis, a axis, basic machine set-up) I will be demonstrating the CAD software I use, as well as some of the models I have available. This will be a quick introduction to CNC work, with more classes to follow, if there is enough interest.
Please sign up on the forum by posting a reply under Teach / Lunch and Learn, so I know how much to bring.
Hope to see you there
