    • Dave & Karen Williams' home; 6675 SW 155th Ave, Beaverton, 97007

    We'll have our BBQ as well and ask attendees to bring a pot luck contribution.  Hamburgers and hot dogs will be provided.  Lunch will be at 2pm. Please register so we have an idea of numbers for food.  Not required but helpful.

    Auction will start at 3pm.  Auctioneer Dave Colsen will be there to entertain us, loosen our purse strings and create the fun atmosphere as he has done the past two years.  You will be able to pay by cash, check or credit card. 

    We will also be auctioning off this huge Cherry burl cut and sealed this June.  It is about 18" x 18" x 16"

    The Board will be working to acquire donations from our sponsors.  In addition, scrounge your wood supplies for really good wood pieces that you can bring and donate to the auction.

     Richard Dlugo has a well earned reputation for designing and making toys, but his are special...they move! Up and down, side to side, bobbling along made possible with offset axles, springs, gears, and other tricks of the trade.  

    In the Club meeting, Richard will introduce us to the principles of toy design, then on the following day, Friday Sept. 8th he will present an all day demo in the design and making of such toys. Then, on the next day, Saturday, Richard will instruct a hands on class to a limited number of participants. More details to follow.   

    The design of toys like are his specialty but he is a wood artisan in his own right as well.  You may have seen his article in the December 2016 AAW magazine which can be accessed and downloaded from his website.
