June 2018 Meeting – Jerry Couchman

Tuesday, June 5th at 7pm
How long does it take to become a woodworker? How many times do you have to make the same mistakes before you finally get it! In 1986, Jerry Couchman began his woodworking career after several items of furniture were destroyed during a USAF move from the Philippines to Hawaii. That accident inspired him to start making his own furniture, which eventually led to a woodworking business. On June 5th, he’ll discuss important lessons he’s learned over the past 32 years that has made his woodworking safer, more accurate and more enjoyable. His presentation will include a slide show and live demonstrations. One of his favorite sayings is “The more mistakes you make, the more you learn!” If you’ve ever taken his box making class, you may have witnessed him making some of those mistakes in action! As an added bonus at this meeting, you could win a custom jig made in his shop that will be included in the June raffle!
