Saturday Jan 16, 2020 Toy Workshop

We shoveled a path thru a two foot snowdrift to the basement door, and then we kicked off our first official RCWA Toy Workshop for 2010 at 9 am at the RCWA Shop - downstairs at 910 Wood Ave in Rapid City. The first job of the day was to unload Grant's pickup - he had collected wood donated from Wilkinson Cabinets in Black Hawk.

Then we tried to determine what toys we need to build for 2010 by looking at what we made in 2009. Here's a snapshot of that effort:

Then we started with animal cutouts, basketball game parts construction, toy car pattern tracing, toy car wood distribution, and other wood distribution to Roger Bares.

Our current plan is to hold two official workshops each month, with the next worksh0p to be held on Saturday, Jan 23, 2010 at 9 am.

General Meeting - January 2010

The first meeting of the Rapid City Woodworkers Association in 2010 was held fireside at 910 Wood Ave in Rapid City on January 11, 2010 at 7 pm. There was a short business meeting, and then we took a break, ate lots of snacks, and settled down for a presentation by Bob Buchanan of everyone’s favorite tool kit, the Rockler 4-in-1 Screwdriver Turning Kit, designed by Alan Lacer. Then we did the Show and Tell.
