Topic: Mike will discuss how wood expansion and contraction can ruin a project and how to plan ahead, so it doesn’t. We will cover different choices for mounting tops to tables, desks, dressers, and other furniture. Laying out and making breadboard ends, applying solid wood backs and trim, and choosing the right grain orientation will also be presented.
Directions: For our members traveling from the south, take the Bullard Avenue exit from Highway 41, turn left and head west about 2 miles. Mike’s place will be on the left next to the park just past Fruit Avenue. If the driveway is full, you can legally park on Bullard, just be careful as Bullard Ave. is a very busy street.
