All WGNC members and their guests are welcome to join us this month for the virtual Show & Tell starting at 7pm. This meeting format encourages all members to share their finished work, ideas, issues and yes, even those shop disasters.

Update: In case you missed it, you can still watch it here.

We strive to be an inclusive club with members at all levels of turning experience. WGNC exists to serve these various levels of experience and the show & tell events are proving to be a great -- and safe -- way to do this.

So, come join us for another virtual show & tell gallery Oct. 15. You are guaranteed to enjoy an evening with your fellow woodturners.

Did you miss the last Show & Tell? You can still watch it here.

Members are asked to submit up to two items, including only two photos for each piece.

If it's a finished piece, we suggest your best "gallery" shot and another of the bottom or profile/detail not shown in the main shot. If it's a work in progress, closeup shots of problem areas or specific challenges would be appropriate.

We also encourage you to have your items with you for the session, so you can hold them up and further discuss or ask advice of other members.

Nothing to share this month? Please join us anyway and take part in the discussion, or just sit back and enjoy the show.

Remember there is a limit of two pieces per member, and please submit your photos before midnight Wednesday, Oct. 14 to be included in the event. Email instructions are noted below.

We will open the Zoom meeting at about 6:30 and begin the show at 7 pm.

We look forward to seeing there Thursday, Oct. 15!

To help keep this manageable... 

   • One message per item, so no more than 2 photos attached in each email.

   • No more than TWO items per person please.

   • Use reasonable photo sizes: We don't need 6M files, so resolution between 500k-1M is fine.

Some tips:

   • Use a booth/backdrop if you have one, but it's OK to shoot in your shop.

   • Find good lighting, preferably from one source. Don't rely on camera flash.

   • Find a solid-color wall in your house; avoid any patterned background.

   • It's OK to hold the piece in hand if you have no table/stand.

   • Crop your photos fairly close to the object alone, regardless of shape.
