First of all I do not know if this too late. We just finalized the meeting this week. It probably is late, but here it is:

The Southern Indiana Woodworkers are going to meet this next Tuesday October 2nd, 2007 at The Marc Adams School of Woodworking in Franklin Indiana. We will take a tour immediately after a slide show presentation. The presenters are: Alan Lacer, Michael Fortune and Paul Schurch. We will meet there at 6:00pm sharp. Their presentation and tour will be over with about 9:00 or 9:30.

Bios are follows:

ALAN LACER has been actively involved as a woodturner since the late 1970s. His work has appeared in a number of regional and national shows in the field. As a demonstrator and presenter, he has appeared throughout the United States as well as four foreign countries. Over the last 16 years he has been actively teaching woodturning at major craft schools, including Arrowmont, and at various universities and major store openings. From 1991 to 1994 he was the president of the American Association of Woodturners. In 1999 Alan was selected as an “Honoree Lifetime Achievement Recipient” from the AAW. He periodically writes for AMERICAN WOODWORKER and AMERICAN WOODTURNER.

MICHAEL FORTUNE maintains his studio near Peterborough, Ontario, Canada, where he designs one-of-a-kind furniture for private residences across North America. He has taught at Sheridan College, Ryerson University, and Rochester Institute of Technology. He was the first woodworker to receive the prestigious Prix Bronfman Award, Canada’s highest award in the crafts. Michael has won dozens of honors, awards, and prizes. His work is on permanent collection at several museums, including Claridge Collection of Canadian Art and Craft in Montreal, Museum of Civilization in Ottawa, and the Ontario Crafts Council Collection. He was recently inducted into the Royal Canadian Academy of the Arts and has been featured in just about every woodworking magazine in existence. Michael is also a past trustee of the Furniture Society.

PAUL SCHÜRCH is the proprietor of Schürch Woodwork in Santa Barbara, CA. He is a well-respected designer and a European-trained master craftsman, with work in private collections and on exhibit around the world. His formal training includes a Swiss apprenticeship in church organ building with continuing journeyman work in England. Paul regularly spends time abroad to study and preserve the dying art of traditional furniture conservation, and to learn and practice new techniques and styles. He has been featured on the front and back cover of FINE WOODWORKING and has been profiled in WOODSHOP NEWS, HOME FURNITURE, AMERICAN WOODWORKER, and SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA WOODWORKER magazines. Paul’s latest pieces incorporate wood and stone together to create woodworking wonders.

This would be a superior opportunity for the Columbus area Woodworkers to see not only the Adams School but some of the high quality instructors that come there to teach.

We plan to meet at the Burger King in Taylorsville Indiana BEFORE 5:00pm before heading north. Do not be late! We leave promptly at 5:00pm…!
