On November 14th, a group of fourteen members attended the Sunnyland Chapter Symposium that was held at the workshop of Barry West. The theme of the first 3 sessions, is the building of a replica Aqua Board which is the predecessor to water skies. Terry Fiest brought an original Aqua Board as a pattern for the project. The initial session discussed the intricacies of selecting the right lumber at the lumber yard and then deciding just the right part of the piece to use. Barry has created his own efficient re-sawing band saw which proved to be highly efficient with very little wood wasted. Watching the process of selecting and preparing to re-saw the lumber proved to be the highlight of the session.
The next session will deal with building the unique parts and how to cut the angles. It will be held on Saturday December 14th at 10:00 am.
