This Month’s Double Event!
f it is August then SWWA heats up with a double event
this month! What? The first is our normal monthly
meeting on Thursday, August 6th. This meeting is
focused on you, our talented and wonderful members! It
is our annual Super Show & Tell session. I encourage
each and every one of you to attend this fun session and
to bring in items for this special night. The entire night is
dedicated to explaining and answering questions about
your special projects. Are you afraid to speak in public?
Summarize your project and someone else will talk about
it! Can’t make it but want a new project talked about?
Send photos and an explanation by 7pm on the 5th to
[email protected] and it will be presented!
During the meeting we will also have our usual 50/50 and
we complete our 3 month raffle for the Bill Bush Finishing
Kit donated by Brian Leary of Lakeshore Hardwood. It
includes his new video and one of his package kits. See
you all on August 6th (don’t disappoint me!).
ur second big event for August is our Annual
Family “Pignic”, named as such because we do
roast a pig! As this newsletter is written, our count
for this FREE event is very low with just over 50 signed up
to attend. Remember this event is part of your
membership. Unlike the other woodworking groups, we do
not charge for attendance. All we ask is that you bring a
dish to pass. We also suggest you bring your own
tableware – plate & silverware. There is plenty of time to
register – call Bob Casey at 455-2593. Remember, this is a
FAMILY picnic. You, your partner, and children &
grandchildren, they are all invited. The club provides
drinks and the meat, rolls for the meat, and the normal
condiments. If you need special drinks, please let Bob
know so we can purchase what folks like.
Oh, don’t forget the recipe to your dish. We’ve had
requests in the past and can easily make a copy if needed.
Charlie will run a 50/50 and we ask that your bring several
of your projects. Why, you ask? Well for our Instant
Gallery of course! This is a great place where everyone
can showcase the vast array of talents in our club. Many
ideas are generated here and you never know, a new tool
may be in the wings. If your honey sees something they
like, you may be able to convince them you need a new
tool! There will be 3x5 cards available for you to identify
anything special about your projects. See you there! You
never know what you might find fun there this year!!!! 

President’s Corner
t’s Saturday evening and I am late getting
the newsletter done. Our grandson Jason was with us
much of the week so my evenings were full. And then
there was work. Ugh!
I did manage to take a few days off earlier in July after
completing a major project for work. As a result I got a
couple of projects nearly completed. They will get done
shortly as they are entries for the 2009 NYS Fair
competition. Charlie continues to turn and is continuously
challenging himself with larger projects. I am still waiting
on a few frames and hope to see them soon. The first 5
cords of wood arrived and need to be stacked. Another 5
will come shortly. Let’s hope it is enough!
On Saturday, July 11th we had our first sale of ornaments
for 2010 at the Seneca River Days. Unfortunately, traffic at
this year’s event was limited so we only made $107. We
also were home by 2pm as the event was called off due to
the incoming storms which dropped tons of rain on the
area. Luckily we were packed up and gone before the rain
hit. We only had to deal with a light shower. Thanks to
Bob Casey, John Mielcarski, John Meloling, Jim Wolnik, and
Don & Sue Vanderveer for their help with setup, selling,
and shutdown. Ornaments are always accepted and
anything is great! Our next sale is the Holiday Shoppes on
November 13-15 with setup on the 12th.
For those new to the club, our annual family pignic is on
Saturday, August 8th. Yep it’s a pignic because our resident
chef, Roland Pearson, roasts a pig so we can have pulled
pork sandwiches. The rest of the meal is provided by the
members and we LOVE creativity there also! That’s this
coming weekend and I hope you can join us. It’s free to
all members and their families (and extended families).
We just need to know how many so Charlie and I can
purchase the drinks and Bob pickup the rolls.
Don’t forget that we have a silent Show & Tell during the
event – members bring in projects to display and entice
family members! The pignic happens just 2 days after our
Super Show & Tell at the August 6th meeting.
The Board met on July 29th. On page 6 you will find a
short summary of our meeting. We were together for
about 1½ hours. In addition to discussing meeting topics,
we also discussed membership losses. We need to know
why folks did not renew. Charlie says he will make some
phone calls to those who did not renew last year. But, if
you are considering not renewing, can you please let him
know why. Also, we will be getting some business card
size cards made with information about the club. Members
will be encouraged to take some to give folks when they
run into people who aren’t members. More later when
they are ready. Denise is writing an article about the club
that can be submitted to the Eagle Newspapers and the
Post Standard. Hopefully that will spark interest. We are
also investigating educating school children about the club.
If you know who the tech ed/shop instructors are in our
schools please let me know.
A reminder, elections are coming up. Don’t get scared,
but do consider getting involved in the club management.
Well, it’s time to close so … Keep on creating!

Renewals, New Members & Visitors
tan received no new memberships and we had no
visitors at the last meeting. We did get to meet Wayne
Grevelding who joined last month without ever coming to a
meeting. We have, at newsletter press time, a total of 166
paid 2009 members. If you know of someone who is
interested in the club and should receive a newsletter,
please call Barbara or send her an email. 
Membership Information
he SWWA membership runs from January to
December. From July to November, we run a half year
membership sale when new members and renewing
members are eligible for a membership at half
price for the rest of 2009 (July through
December). If you are sitting on the fence,
now is a good time to come on board! Full
year new memberships for singles are $28
including $3 for a badge and $41 for couples.
Renewals are $25 & $35 respectively. Checks should be
made payable to SWWA. All memberships must have the
form completed and the liability statement signed [the
form is on the website and available at all meetings].
While we understand that in many cases nothing changes,
each year we like to verify that the membership database
contains accurate information. Also, we must have a
signed liability statement completed each year to
financially protect all of the SWWA membership and
everyone involved with the SWWA. So, it is not enough
just to send a check, we need the completed and signed
form as well. Renewals and checks can be sent to our
treasurer Stan as follows: SWWA, ℅ Stan Wiley, 4122
Abbey Road, Syracuse, NY 13215. Do not send cash.

This Month!
Save the Date – Saturday, August 8th – 1-5pm!!
Our sign-ups continue at the August meeting. This is a family event.
Bring the kids, parents, partners, uncles, aunts, etc. Everyone brings
a dish to pass and the club provides wonderfully roasted pork cooked
by our own chef, Roland Pearson. The club also provides some hot
dogs, rolls, condiments, and drinks which is why we need to know the
numbers. Also, if you prefer specific drinks, please tell us so we can
purchase the correct ones.

Plan now to attend! Bring your own plate and table service! Don’t
forget the spoon (or whatever) to serve your dish to pass!
Can’t make it to the meeting?
Call Bob Casey at 455-2593 to register!
4th Annual SWWA
Woodworker’s Challenge
At the November meeting we will hold our 4th annual Challenge. All members are
encouraged and eligible to participate. The sign-up is available at each meeting with final
sign-ups by September.
The rules: Any member or group of up to 3 people will design and construct or construct from a plan
(with or without modifications) a wood project of their choosing. You furnish the materials; the
type/kind is up to you. There is no limit on the maximum or minimum amount of wood that can be
used. All projects must be finished with any desired finish. Projects will be displayed and judged by
those in attendance at the November meeting. Each attendee has one vote. Three prizes will be
awarded – 1st Place of $50, 1st Runner-Up of $30, and Honorable Mention of $20. 

July Meeting Recap
smaller than normal group attended a wonderfully intimate
and informative session on lamination techniques by Charles
Trabold and Bruce Meissner. Did you miss it? Well if so, it was a
bad one to miss. Both presenters provided a wealth of knowledge
and experience about their process for laminating wood. Charles
brought in the replica 1951 Wagner sawback chair he showed in
January to use in his explanation of lamination whereas Bruce
brought a cherry table. Thanks gentlemen. Comments from folks
as they left reinforced the great job you did.
Our Show & Tell was fun and informative as usual. Mic
Jenkins started us off discussing two boxes he built, one for his
grandson to commemorate his graduation. Made of cherry, both
used box joints for the corners. He had his grandson’s box
engraved at Memphis Lumber.
During the past year or so, Jim Ireland has been experimenting
with and perfecting his skills with carving using the kolrosing
technique. At this meeting he showed three new photos he
recently kolrose carved. The carving is on basswood with each
framed in either maple or cherry frames. Jim will be demonstrating his procedure at a meeting early in 2010.
At the June scrolling meeting, Bill Noroski showed the Porsche Panamera portrait he designed from promotional
documents he received as he is a Porsche owner. A similar one was entered in the annual Porsche show, this year held
outside Denver where he placed 2nd. The label showing the car name was cut by William Killabrew. Thanks for
showing it Bill.
In between trips to the Caribbean and rides on his motorcycle, John McNamara found time to complete the Kathy
Wise-based intarsia wreath with cardinals of aspen, bloodwood, lacewood, and red cedar. John is an intarsia specialist
who created the sign that adorns the front of the podium which the club donated to Canton Woods.
The June demo included John Meloling quickly completing a dovetail corner cut by hand. John showed the completed
joint to the group. A reminder … In last month’s newsletter your editor challenged everyone to use it or loose it – in
other words, combine the information learned in June about dovetailing with that learned in July on lamination into a
single piece. Your result is to be presented at the August meeting. I know one person trying to do it. Are you???
Like Mic, Jerry Sweeny has a grandson also; he is 9 going on 20. Like most kids, he has some treasures that needed
a home. Jerry created the spalted maple lock box he showed at the July meeting for just this purpose. When the piece
was finished, Jerry did not like the color and added some fruitwood stain to his finishing of the box.
Our final presenter at the meeting was Charles Trabold. The turning bug has nibbled at Charles. The result? He
showed four recently completed pieces. The first was a bowl made from a piece of lacewood that started at 2” thick.
The grain of the lacewood makes the bowl even more dramatic. Ever thrifty, he removed a ring of lacewood from the
bowl as he created it. This ring was added to a maple base to create another bowl. The third bowl he showed was of a
dense wood he didn’t know the name of. Attendees believe it to be wenge. The platter he showed was created from a
section of a tree. It was an end grain slice which made the turning more difficult. Charles indicated that it was horrible to
turn because of punkiness interspersed with stable, more dense wood. But, he beat it into submission [with his cane]!
Charlie LaPrease recently completed a frame to house a 2-sided laminated memorial of
a friend’s mother. The frame was of walnut and maple and allowed the memorial to sit
between turned rods. The photo of
this frame is shown in the photos on
page 6.
The 50/50 of $41 was won by Dave
Peckham. Five backscratchers
demonstrating lamination techniques
were distributed to lucky winners
based on the same tickets.

Leadership: Barbara Raymond, Temporarily – NEED ONE
Meeting Night: Third Wednesday of the Month at 6:30 pm - At Canton Woods
Next Meeting: Wednesday, September 16th at Canton Woods Senior Center
Focus Topic: First Ever SWWA SIG Scrolling Challenge
Also: Discussion of Scrolling Problems and Show & Tell
The first ever SIG Scrolling Challenge will occur at the September meeting.
The rules are: Each participant can use one board foot of a single piece of wood to construct
something using their scrollsaw. The item can be finished to provide contrast. The wood can be
resawn; however, no hardware (like hinges or handles or clock faces) can be added to the piece
unless the hardware is made from the same 1 board foot of wood.
Scrolling News
 For scrollers that own RBI Hawk scrollsaws who worried about their warranties and parts, there is a
notice on the RBI website (rbiwoodtools.com) indicating that on April 13, 2009 “Bushton Manufacturing
has purchased Hawk Woodworking Industries. Parts are available and production will resume in the
near future.” Bushton Manufacturing looks to be located in Bushton, Kansas and is owned by Loren & Nilus Orth
(620)562-3557 or [email protected]
 Fox Chapel Publishing (www.foxchapelpublishing.com) recently issued 2 new books which are compilations of
patterns over the years – Wooden Puzzles and Wooden Clocks. They also issued the Zodiac Puzzles book as well an
updated version of Animal Puzzles. Two books for non-scrollers are Great Book of Wooden Toys and Turning Vintage
 For scrollers looking to communicate with other scrollers on many different topics, consider joining the Scroll Saw
Woodworking & Crafts Message Board. It is a online scroll saw forum community where you can join thousands of
scrollers from around the world discussing all things related to scrolling. The address is www.scrollsawer.com and it
is free. The free pattern area formerly in Absolutely Free Scroll Saw Patterns relocated to this message board.
 The Scrollsaw Association of the World (SAW) will again host a SAW EXPO in 2010 at the Roberts Centre in
Wilmington, Ohio on July 10 and 11. EXPO is seminars, demonstrations, and vendors attend. A huge Scrollsaw
Contest is also held with prizes that make the trip to EXPO a valuable experience. Roberts Centre is located in the
middle of three of the largest cities in Ohio: Columbus, Cincinnati, and Dayton and features a Holiday Inn that is
adjacent to the Centre. The trip is about 9 hours from Syracuse.

If not, talk to a board member with your idea.
The Board also discussed Saturday Seminars. Greg
Bogardo offered to present one on tuning jointers.
Others are on hold due to questions as to interest
on the part of members. Maybe we should raise
the cost from $5 to $25 so you believe you are
getting a better value? You tell us. We talked
about the need to increase our membership as well
as find out why members do not renew. We also
are re-investigating our cost for liability insurance.

SHOP TIME … A File for Tight Corners
hen smoothing curved profiles, consider using
a fine-cutting file to get into the inside corners
that a sanding drum can’t reach. But the thick
square edges of the file can get in the way and
sometimes even damage the workpiece. So rather
than abandon this method, simply modify the tool to
fit the job.
As you can see in the drawings at right, grind a
bevel on both edges of the file to give more
clearance in tight corners. You can make this
modification with just a few minutes work at the
bench grinder. But you want to be careful to not let
the file get so hot that it loses its temper. Keep a
container of water close by to quench it and this won't be a problem. 
MORE SHOP TIME … Revolving Finish Station
ne of the biggest challenges in a small shop is
having room to apply finish to a project.
Everyone needs something that wouldn’t take
up much room but would still provide easy access to
all sides of the project. The station you see here is
the solution.
First, the top sits on a lazy Susan. This allows you to
rotate the project and apply finish easily on all sides.
Second, the hinges allow you to set the station up
and tear it down quickly. And third, it can be set up
in a corner of my shop out of the way and without
taking up a lot of valuable space.
The base consists of two side panels made from 3/4″
plywood and connected by a hinge. Another hinge connects one side panel assembly to
the turntable, which is made up of two plywood disks and the lazy Susan (right).
When you set the station up, swing the two side panels open. The top will rest on the
side panels and fit down onto a dowel pin (drawing above right). The dowel acts as a
safety catch to lock the station open and adds stability. When you’re done with the
station, all you have to do is lift the top up, fold the panels together, and hang it on a
wall hook, as you see in the drawing above.

Toys for Underprivileged – Small Parts Regulation
hinking about getting started building the toys you will donate to charity at our December 3rd Christmas
Party? While the rules for testing toys are still not clear, the Consumer Products Safety Commission
(CPSC) has regulations that you should comply with regarding small parts on toys and products intended for
children under 3 years old. Mel Taber was kind enough to give your editor some information that we are sharing below.
This is excerpted from the regulatory summary found on their website – www.cpsc.gov.
The regulation is contained in 16. C.F.R. Part 1501 and 1500.50-53. The small parts regulation is meant to prevent
“deaths and injuries to children under three from choking on, inhaling, or swallowing small objects they may “mouth”. It
bans toys and other articles that are intended for use by children under three and that are or have small parts, or that
produce small parts when broken.”
The “regulation covers products that are intended for use by children under three. These products include a wide range
of articles such as toys, dolls, and puzzles, nursery equipment, infant furniture and equipment such as playpens, strollers,
and baby bouncers and exercisers. See 16 C.F.R. Part 1501.2 for a more detailed list.”
What is defined as a small part? A small part is any object that fits completely into a
specially designed test cylinder 2.25 inches long by 1.25inches wide that approximates the
size of the fully expanded throat of a child under three years old. [See figure right.] See 16
C.F.R. 1501.4 A small part can be:
(1) A whole toy or article.
(2) A separate part of a toy, game, or other article.
(3) A piece of a toy or article that breaks off during testing that simulates use or abuse by
If a small part fits completely into the cylinder, and the toy or product from which it came is
intended for use by children under three, the toy or product is banned because the small
part presents a choking hazard.
Are any toys and products exempt from the small parts regulations?
(1) Yes. Balloons, books and other articles made of paper, phonograph records, writing
materials such as crayons, chalk, pencils and pens, modeling clay and similar products, and
finger paints, watercolors and other paint sets are exempt because they cannot be
manufactured in a way that would prevent them from breaking into small parts when
subjected to use and abuse testing. Children’s clothing and accessories such as shoe lace holders and buttons, and
grooming, feeding and hygiene products such as diaper pins and clips, barrettes, toothbrushes, drinking glasses, dishes
and eating utensils are also exempt because they need to be small to perform their intended purpose. See 16 C.F.R. Part
(2) Rattles and pacifiers are subject to their own small parts requirements. See 16 C.F.R. 1510.3 and 1511.4(d).
(3) A product intended for use by children under three must meet the requirements of the small parts regulation unless
the product is one of those items that is specifically exempt from the regulation.
What testing requirements for small parts must toys and products for children under three meet?
These toys and products must not release pieces that fit completely into the small parts cylinder after impact, flexure,
torque, tension and compression testing. These tests simulate the forces that toys and products can experience during
normal use and abuse by children under 3. If these forces cause parts to break off that fit in the cylinder, those parts
present a risk of choking, aspiration or ingestion to children under 3.
Are there any other requirements intended to protect children under 3 from choking on small parts?
Yes. Toys and games that are or contain small parts as manufactured and that are intended for use by children from 3 to
6 years old must be labeled to warn purchasers not to buy them for children under 3 years old because those children
could choke on the small parts. Marbles, small balls, and balloons also require similar warnings. See 16 C.F.R. 1500.19
So … If you have pieces with your toys that do not meet these guidelines, label as notfor-children under 3. The ASTM also has standards on toy safety. See …
http://www.astm.org/toys.html And … keep on working on those toys!
