May 4th Guild Meeting

Cartoon for Carving by Paul Anderson of Helena, Montana

Paul Anderson  will be hosting our May meeting.  He will be sharing a couple of boxes he has made using small scraps of wood, as well as sharing some really unusual wood that he has been using.

Paul is one of Helena’s most talented and inspirational woodworkers, with a house full of interesting work that he has created, from furniture to elaborate carving and so much more. He is a very humble woodworker who mostly builds for himself and his family, so a meeting a his shop is great opportunity to see what he has been up to.

Paul will have some hand planes for sale as well.  The main dish will be either be roast turkey or ham!  Yum!
