Wednesday’s meeting will be held at Dave Blenkush’s shop north of St. Stephen. Dave is going to give us a vacuum pressing presentation. He has some pretty interesting projects in progress and we’ll get to have a look at them as well as a tour of his most impressive shop. Dave’s shop is a full-boat woodworking shop, complete with his own CNC machine, and a complete machine shop shares the building with his woodworking shop. Dave has built quite a few of his own woodworking machines and they look like they were produced by a major tool manufacturer. This is a meeting you don’t want to miss!
