Meeting Minutes May 2015

IKI Meeting Minutes - 5/17/2015

The meeting was held at Central American Hardwoods and hosted by its President, Jerry Ziliak.

Welcome to visitor Alex Steckler; we hope you'll be back!

Rich Couture reported on the recent display at the Arts Council of Southwest Indiana.    The  event was very well received as approximately 150 people reviewed the turnings during the two week event.    The Arts Council has indicated an interest of having us display our turnings again at some point in the future. 

It was agreed the club will spend $20 to cover shipping of a box of hard wood being offered at no charge by North Woods, LLC.    In addition, they are offering FREE Shipping to  club members through May 31st on any order over $50 by using the code "FREESHIP50"    (domestic shipping only and doesn't apply to already discounted items or special orders).

Susan Hansen left word that our bank balance currently stands at $2,554.42.   We will be ordering a couple more DVD's as additions to our library.

Dallas James reported he has a One  Way 20X36 lathe for sale for $2,500.00, along with other miscellaneous items.  Contact Dallas if you have an interest.

Joe Pack offered sycamore to anyone that can use it (free).  He expects to have it available for a few days so let him know as soon  as you can.

Jerry Ziliak provided a very good and interesting overview of his business, Central American hardwoods.   Please let Jerry know if you have need for any of his wood as he's offered a 20% discount to our club members.

Brian Hart provided a demonstration of how he does his off set turnings.   It was very well received and provided insight to his technique to making these unique turnings.

Thanks for those that provided work for "show and tell".    Dennis Young is looking for someone to demonstrate how to turn a basic bowl at the June meeting.   Please let him know if your interested in providing this demonstration.

Next meeting; Sunday June 14th.

Keep turning.

Roger for Dan
