Restoration and Use of the Canadian Pattern Broad Axe

Corey Pool is a conservation carpenter with a reverence for the history of our region's rich lumber and timber era. He will discuss the Canadian pattern broad axe and its significance to Ottawa and the Outaouais.  He will also demonstrate traditional hewing techniques, and discuss the rising interest in the conservation of living history.

In addition to Mr. Pool's feature presentation, there's the usual fare: a 50-50 draw, Show-and-Tell, tool swap, and some milling about.

Our February meeting falls on the fourth of the month.  Meetings take place from 7 to 9 PM in the basement gym of the Bethany Baptist Church.  It is where Centrepointe meets Baseline, the Western of the two meeting points, kitty-corner from Angelo's.  Come as early as 6:30 if you'd like to help set up.  It's best to bring separate dry indoor footwear for the gym.

Want to see if the Ottawa Woodworkers Association is right for you?  We welcome all woodworking skill levels, amateur or professional.  You can attend as many as two meetings before deciding whether to commit to our annual $50 membership fee.  Register as a guest with Don or Jocelyn at the door.
