2019 Annual Christmas Ornament Program
The meeting format is an open discussion by all members. The experience, interests and areas of expertise of each member vary from novice or beginner to very experienced. As such, the exchange of experience is invaluable to all.
Each month members will bring to the meeting their in-process or completed work better known as "show and tell". Members will explain their techniques, difficulties, successes and recommendations. Many demonstrations and disussions include:
-- Saw blade selection, sources, prices and experience tips
-- Wood choices; thicknesses, scrolling characteristics relative to blade selection, saw speeds, wood grain or hardness
-- Wood sources and pricing
-- Wood finishing products and techniques
-- Scrolling Saw use, maintenance, safety and experience
-- Scrolling techniques and tips
-- Fretwork and Intarsia plans are discussed and many times members will bring copies of plans to discuss future projects.
Note: the Scroller's club maintains an extensive file of plans and books available for members use.
The club meets each second Monday of the month at the Klingspor Woodworking Shop in Winston Salem starting at 6:00
The Carolina Scrollers completed their annual program in 2019 to make and sell handmade scrolled Christmas ornaments to benefit the Second Harvest Food Bank of North Carolina. 100% of the sales were donated.
The program for 2019 was a two phase program. Phase one was the sale of ornaments at the Klingspor Extravaganza Woodworking Show in Hickory NC on October 25 and 26, 2019.
Phase two began November 27 at the Winston Salem, NC Klingspor Woodworking Shop located at 532 Hanes Mall Blvd. Sales continued until January 2020.
As shown below, 2019 was the best year since we began the program. Hopefully 2020 will be even better.
