When: Thursday August 21, 2014 at 7:30 PM
Where: Hurley Reformed Church
Who: Joe Kennedy will give us a presentation on sharpening. Even if you are good at sharpening, Joe can teach you how to do better. You cannot possibly get a hand tool too sharp! But you can sharpen them incorrectly for the job they do. Don't miss this chance to improve your basic woodworking skills.
Picnic Reminder: September 13 at West Hurley Park. Put it on your calendar now.

Mid-Hudson Woodworkers Meeting June 19
John Van Buren will present an overview on the construction of a Skin on Frame Boat.
This type of construction can result in a finished 18 foot long kayak that weighs about 35 pounds. Total construction time is typically 40 hours, and the cost will be in the range of $300. Skills required are fairly basic: use of a jig saw, knot tying, sewing on the skin and varnishing the boat to make it water tight.
At the end of the presentation, John will provide a handout that will provide reference sources - books and web sites, plus a listing of sources for materials.
John will have a completed skin on frame kayak plus an "unskinned" kayak frame a5t the demonstration. John has built two canoes and three kayaks - all of which are seaworthy and without leaks. He has also made repairs to several canoes and kayaks.
There will be the regular features of our meetings so be sure to bring a "show and tell" item or story to share.
