    Re: Charlotte Area Members We Want Your Input

    I'm in, but I doubt that my shop is. It's too small for me and one other at the same time, let alone a dozen at the same time, but I'll gladly participate and go to other's shops or possibly a once a month lunch meeting like other areas are doing. I go to the Winston-Salem lunches when I can, but one closer would be easier to get to.

    Re: Charlotte Area Members We Want Your Input

    Ok, so obviously we can make this happen with a decent turnout.

    Just throwing these dates out based on what I've suggested and what I just read... How would September 23, 30 or October 7th work for a first gathering?

    Who is willing to host? I'd gladly do it but I just need to know if people are willing to drive out to my place in the sticks outside of Rock Hill. However, if we can start off with someone who's located a little more centrally it might benefit getting this off the ground with a good size group showing up.

    During a meeting, I can do a short demo on incorporating inlays and inlay bandings in woodworking projects if there is an interest.

    I'd be willing to host. Live in SE Charlotte very close to Matthews and a few miles off I-485. Also like Matt's offer to demo inlay work.

    Re: Charlotte Area Members We Want Your Input

    Thanks, everyone - this sounds promising!
    Personally, I will likely be out of town the last week in September, but don't reschedule - let's just DOUBLE DOWN!!

    Let's plan a few things!
    I REALLY like the idea of Matt doing a demo or a workshop???!!!
    Do we want or need a sharpening workshop? (Planes, Chisels, card scrapers etc.)
    Hand saw Sharpening?


    Like Charles, I work out of a small place - otherwise everyone would be welcome here...

    Nick, if you are willing to host let's make it happen!

    I'm sure interested, as long as hillbillies are welcome. You have more than enough to have a successful get together on a monthly basis. A small demo can possibly be incorporated into each meeting. Anyhow, let's do this thing and ROLL!

    Re: Charlotte Area Members We Want Your Input

    As I mentioned to Nick and Hank in messages this week, I'm in and am offering up my shop in Concord as one of the locations. I'm off of Hwy 49 just past Harrisburg, behind Central Cabarrus High. I have plenty of room to host at least a dozen people and we can do just about any workshop with the exception of hand tool work. I don't have a heavy enough bench to deal with aggressive hand plane and chisel work. Just let me know!

    So, the first workshop is a Moravian bench or a traveling workbench! ha ha

    Re: Charlotte Area Members We Want Your Input

    I am interested in meeting you guys in person. I am tied up with the late stages (I hope) of a new workshop so don't have time to get out much but will try.

    (I am REALLY looking forward to this!)

    Per your PM, if you want to try to get one together in August I can only do the 5th or the 26th. I'll be on vacation the 12th and CATS will have a full light rail system shutdown on the 19th that I have to work all weekend for.

    If we can get a few people out to my place on one of those weekends I'm happy to host it. I could do an impromptu sharpening demo if needed but don't think I can get much else together before then. Maybe someone else can demo something on short notice?
