There were 31 members in attendance at the meeting and eight guests (Chris Duvall, Al Taricco, Geoff Geller, John Peasley, M. Dummett, Al Bibbero, Bryan O’Mchaney and Ryan O’Mchaney) for a total of 39 people in attendance.
President John was home recouping from surgery so VP Joe Mannke took over and conducted the meeting.
This evening’s presentation was by Larry Simmons. He demonstrated how to hand cut mortise and tenon joints using hand tools. A few of the tools he used for this project were marking gauge, sharp pencil, small square, mortise chisel, carcass saw, marking knife, clamp, bench chisels and chisel hammer. Using the video to project the image of Larry’s demonstration on the big screen allowed the whole group to see how the mortise and tenon were made.
