May 11, 2015 Meeting; Ken Richards Exotic Woods

Print

The program for EWWG for May 11th is a presentation by Ken Richards of a world-wide sample of exotic woods as per his description below. Ken Richards was the judge for our in-house woodworking competition in March and owns Ken Richards Furniture. His work can be seen on his website, kenrichardsfurniture.com.

“I had a collection of wood samples that I thought the group might find interesting. There are over 200 samples of woods from all over the world. All have been finished and labeled. There is a wide range of sizes, but most are under 1/2 board foot. I will lay them out on 2-3 tables and start at one end and work my way through the collection talking about the different woods, working characteristics, figure patterns etc. Some I have had experience working with, others have just found their way into my collection. All are interesting (at least to me), and the range of colors and flavors is pretty amazing.”

The next meeting is 6:30pm; Edgewood Bible Church 1801 Meridian; Edgewood WA.

Our meetings are always the second Monday of the month. Please feel free to drop in for a visit and consider becoming a member.

6:30 doors open. Meeting begins at 7pm.
