There were 34 members in attendance at the meeting and six guests (Bus Maslin, Anita Gary, Harold Berg, Lloyd Shaffer, Brent Meyer, and Andrei Ioroachesay). Total attendance – 40.
Our guest speaker was again Ed Goldberg, who completed his presentation on how to make an inlaid Compass Rose. In this session he demonstrated how to cut the pattern from the substrate. 1. Score the outline. 2. Use a trim router to remove the wood from the central area. 3. Use a router plane to cut along the edges, finishing the points with a fine knife. Use wood glue, sparingly, and set the inlay in carefully. Press against a plastic wrapped block of wood until dry (about 2 hours). Then use a card scraper to remove the veneer tape and sand to satisfaction. Use a finish of your choice.
