First off - Happy Anniversary to all of us! This month marks our fourth year of meeting to talk about all things wood - and in those years, we’ve forged some wonderful connections, don’t you think? Congratulations to all of us!
Sin City Woodworkers, a Vegas valley social and networking group committed to serious (and not so serious!) woodworking discussions, meet on the third Wednesday of each month to share everything from techniques and ideas to information about local suppliers and much more. Our next meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, February 20 at 7:00, and one of our founding members - Dennis Patchett - will be presenting an interesting discussion and demo on wood carving.
Dennis brings a wealth of knowledge and depth of skills to our group, and his past discussions not only show his passion for carving, but give us a great deal of inspiration for what can be done with a chisel or carving knife.
He’s going to be sharing some of his recent pieces - and discuss the upcoming carving class that he’ll be teaching. It’s always a treat to see him working - he’s so laid back and humble, but his work is of a world class quality. If you’re interested in carving, or just want to see some amazing pieces in wood, you’ll want to attend this meeting.
This meeting will be held at Studio: Wood It Is!, 2267 West Gowan, unit 106 in North Las Vegas. As always, the public is welcome to attend the meeting, so members - please feel free to bring a guest along. But remember that there are a limited number of chairs in the woodshop. Attendees might want to bring a folding chair if they wish to sit during the meeting. If you have questions or need directions, call the studio at 631-1870.
