I had a previous engagement, so I just barely made it to the meeting last Saturday! I need to apologize to everyone for posting the wrong address for the First Electric building.... no wonder no one was showing up at the meetings! It has been corrected now, at least at this site. Here is the roughout and go-by for the Christmas mouse that we are working on.
And here is a soldier someone is working on.....
We think the next meeting will be February 11th, barring anything un-forseen. We had a couple new members that I missed meeting and I believe Lou and Samir were both absent, at least by the time I got there. We sure hope to see everyone at the next meeting, with lot's of show-and-tell items and make this a really good year for carving!

It works! That doesn’t always happen, for me! I still have a little tweaking to do on one cam, but this is pretty much how it will operate. I’ll be able to start on the painting and finishing next, which shouldn’t be too bad.
Of course, one of the things that slows me down, is all the “testing” I just have to do! So, as a thank you to those that have followed my blog, I decided to post a little preview of it in action. Thanks for everyone’s encouragement and comments!

is January 21st, 9 am, at the Electric building. Fred Nahlen has the "Santa Mouse" for the carving session (I was thinking he dad some roughouts for $20, but I may be thinking of something else?). Bring stuff for show and tell, and it's time to pay annual dues ($15). Cash or check (payable to Jim Butler) is preferred, as our treasurer Ken Glasscock has been laid up with a knee injury! Best wishes for a fast recuperation go out to Ken. Invite a friend and we hope to see you there!
