At our first meeting of the new season, Lloyd Butler will be our seminar leader with a presentation titled "What's Wrong With My Bowl Gouge?"

Lloyd is the President of Golden Horseshoe Woodturners Guild. He is also a member of our Guild, and an active coach in our Hands-on program. Lloyd has the ability to clearly explain how things work in woodturning, and how to do them better. Don't miss what will certainly be a great learning opportunity.
