November: Marty Schlosser Presents Joseph Walsh

Once again, Marty Schlosser drove up from Kingston to deliver a mesmerizing presentation of his tour of Joseph Walsh's workshop, installations, and methods.  You may take a look at Mr. Walsh's web site if you need a reminder or want to kick yourself for missing November's meeting.  The Ottawa Woodworkers Association is through and through grateful for Marty's generous sharing in the form of his feature presentations.
