Rob also reminded the group of the new Frank Long Memorial Scholrship Program.  Rob did the drawing of the names submitted and Lee Buck was the luck winner for 2014.


Congratulations to George and Lee.


Rob mentioned an article he saw in a recent AAW Magazine about a program started by Central Oklahoma Woodturners Association which makes tops for small children (tots), hence the name “Tops to Tots” now expanded to include children in Africa and China.

 Rob will be looking for volunteers to make tops for this program.

MAWA is looking to create a logo for the new group.  If you have a picture or outline of a turned piece, or suggestion for MAWA logo, send email to Rob Kingham.


Rick Bryant asked if anyone has experience with Abranet.  His pieces seem to be lasting a long time.  A good discussion.  The product does seem to last a lone time.  Suggestions for less expensive sources.

Butch passed around a book he has on the calabash style bowl.


One of the Hawaii wood turning clubs has a good article on traditional Hawaii bowls.  Worth a look since I cannot link to the book.
