August 2016 Meeting


Mike Drejza, treasurer, reminds all that our fiscal year started July 1st and so dues of $36 are due. You can write a check, made out to: Fine Woodworkers of Austin (preferable), or pay cash.

Show & Tell:

This month we will devote most of the meeting to “Show & Tell”. Last meeting we did not get to all the members that brought items to share. I should have allowed more time in the agenda. Sharing our projects with others should take priority in our meetings. Please bring your show and tell items and remember they can be a work in process.

Remember “Show & Tell” can include jigs, fixtures, tools (purchase or made) and / or tips you use in building your projects or to keep you shop organized.

If you have photos please email them to me so I can have them ready to go or bring them on a flash drive. I will be there early to up load them before the meeting.

Q & A:

Bring your woodworking or shop questions. You can get answers from some of the most talented woodworkers in Austin.

What a great idea:

A long time member had an idea of doing a build challenge that would create the opportunity for all members to participate in a fun actively.

Let’s have a “project build challenge for the September meeting”. All the details in our August meeting. If this goes the way we think it will we may have more in the future.

If anyone has ideas for the club please contact one of the board members. The contact information is below.


We have a casual dinner before each meeting. It is at Maudies on north Lamar @ 5:30. Look for an email on Wednesday to reserve a seat.

Also don’t forget the 10% discount on most items at Woodcraft available shortly before our meeting and during our break. Please support our host.
