Next Meeting, Monday June 13, 2016
Edgewood Bible Church, 1720 Meridian, Edgewood, WA
6:30 PM until 9:00PM

Woodworking democracy: A shop without rulers

Pack away your rulers and tape measures!
Tonight you will learn how to design, measure, and proportion anything you want to build using a surprisingly simple method of harmonic whole number ratios, all based on a measuring tool you always have close at hand (even when you’re in the shower).
Learn to draw or build any shape, whether it’s a rectangle, a Gothic arch, or a volute, with only a compass, a straight edge, and a sector. (We’ll also do a volute with only string, a pencil, and four screws.)
No math, no fractions, and no measuring tools. Free yourself and expand your creative ability with a system that creates visually pleasant ratios with ergonomically correct proportions.
