Helpful hint

    • Training Classes - How to get trained on every area and tool in the building. (must be logged into Wiki to view)

Rule and Regulation of the Week

  • Today's RULE comes from our Leather Working Area Champion Adam:

When working on the 4×8 table in the leather working area (in the east room at the Lenox building) or on the granite block, NEVER use dyes, paints or anything that can stain. These materials easily transfer to the leather being worked on that table and can ruin a person's project.

Post Meeting Reminders
