March’s meeting we will take a little break from all the excitement and come back to our own shop for the presentation. Devin plans on doing a demo on Project Planning, Layouts, Cutlists, Bill of Materials, Drawings, and CAD. We’ve all heard the saying “Measure Twice, Cut Once” and he’d like to take that to the next level with this presentation. When he starts a new project he always like to do my drawings in CAD. It can be extremely beneficial to have a clear plan on what to do; it helps eliminate costly errors and helps get your concept nailed down before you even power up the table saw. A few free programs are available for download if any of you would like to start playing around with them before the meeting, then if you have any questions he can answer them.
