Picnic Information

The annual picnic will be held at the shop of Tom and Stacy Nehl on Sunday, September 13. Their shop is located at 1008 Rolling Glen Dr., Marion, IA


Bring a chair, table service, and a dish to share!


Open turning will begin at 9:00 am. Lunch will start at 12:00 and the Challenge Project drawing will be announced by Kevin as soon as everyone has food and is sitting down. Each person should be able to say a few words about their project and any challenges they en-countered in completing it. We will then start the silent auction at 1:00.

The open turning session is open to all. This is a good time to ask questions of others and get some personal mentoring on a specific project or technique you may be having trouble with. We should have several lathes available to use. It would be best if you brought your own tools. Tool sharpening help will also be available for those who are having trouble sharpening their tools.
