2017 Picnic Photos

June 2, 2018

11:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.

This is our last meeting until September. The location is at the Abbott Loop Community Park, 8101 Elmore Rd., Anchorage. Meat for the grill will be provided, with members encouraged to bring a side dish.

As in past years, there will be an instant gallery with Hardware Specialties gift certificates given to the top three entries as determined by People's Choice votes. Some beautiful pieces were brought to the event last year, so please bring your work to share.

Instead of a demonstration, this year's picnic will feature a quick-turning competition in which turners are given 10 minutes to turn the item of their choice out of a 3"x3"x6" piece of poplar. The lathe with 50 mm chuck jaws, a live center, and a spur center will be provided. Please bring your own tools. A few more participants are needed for this event. If interested, please contact Heather Ashley at A wonderful prize will be awarded to the winner.
