June meeting June 6, 2011

Dale Fox’s house
7101 34th Street,
North Highlands CA 95660
Business meeting will begin at 7:00 PM, and the technical program will start at 7:30.  Be sure to reply with an RSVP for a proper dinner count.
Please make every effort to attend this meeting, as the June Meeting is our annual Election of Officers.  John Leggett has agreed to serve as Chapter President, and Terry Miller has agreed to continue on as Secretary/Treasurer.  Due to family considerations, Gene Nelson will not be able to serve as Vice-President next year, so we need someone to “step up”  and fill in this important role.
Also, John Leggett as agreed to serve as our representative to Council at the upcoming national convention, so we will need to discuss reimbursement for his expenses.
Gene has prepared an interesting technical program for June, entitled:
The ability to “read” wood = knowing best how to select wood for a specific application and knowing the nature of grain well enough to work a piece of wood or timber in a manner appropriate to its individual characteristics. (I will not spend much time on selection and application)
You are hewing the surface of a long, straight log with an adze – the most basic milling tool there is – and an experienced woodworker observes you and points out that you are hewing in the wrong direction. Which direction is that? (Hold answer for later)
 Looking at the face of a board, which is outside and which is pith side?
Which end was top or bottom in the tree?
Which direction to plane a particular surface?
If a particular timber is suited to the intended use?
