Win Part Slab from Legacy Lumber

We just learned, thanks to Carl Duguay of the Canadian Woodworking and Home Improvement magazine, that Legacy Lumber will be drawing a $250 gift certificate against one of their slabs or other wood products.  Legacy Lumber supplies slabs out of Mississauga, Ontario.  There is a daily blog on YouTube by Paul Lemiski with frequent references to Legacy Lumber, along with recaps of his own woodworking day.  Paul's core product is Maloof inspired furniture, and he has posted several how-to videos on Maloof joinery. You can obtain entries -- yes, more than one -- for the draw for the gift certificate by visiting the magazine's entries site .  The offer expires on June 9th, and you will probably need to visit starting now to work through the labyrinth of subscriptions, visits, and referrals that will earn you entries.

Tuesday, May 7th, 7-9 PM

This month our very own Don Duchesne will show us how to model our woodworking creations in SketchUp.  He will also demonstrate a cool plugin that automatically produces a cut list from the model.  If you've been putting off learning how to use SketchUp, then this is a Must Attend.  And then there's the usual gang of activities: Show-And-Tell, tool selling or swapping, and a 50-50 draw. New members are always welcome; in fact, you can attend a couple of meetings to see what goes on, no charge, while you consider whether you would like to join the OWA.  Meetings are in the basement of the Bethany Baptist Church at the Western intersection of Baseline and Centrepointe, first Tuesday of the month, from 7-9 PM.  If it's wet, bring dry indoor footwear.
