Attendance for the February meeting was at a high level. Thirty-three people showed up with many bringing items for show and tell. President Steve Penn informed the group that Shell Lake has been reserved for August 17-20 for 2023. If you are new here and want more information click on the link below.
Next up was Peter Christensen doing a demo on using tannin, vinegar and steel wool to turn wood black. Thanks for the excellent demo Peter.
Hmmmmm….Now how do I get that stain out of my shirt???
High tannin wood like Oak can be coated with the vinegar/steel wool only while woods like maple and alder will need a coating of tannin first.

Steve brought some wood burning pens and some tips for a discussion about adding embellishments to our turnings. Sorry Steve…I missed getting a picture of you.
