    While web surfing, I found this great design and video from Tamar Hannah for a simple tenoning jig. Built in an afternoon. See: https://www.3x3custom.com/tutorials/adjustable-tenoning-jig

    I contacted Tamar from 3×3 Custom about coming to our club one night to do a presentation but unfortunately she can’t do weeknights as she has lots of things to do with her children during the week. If we can get her to come on a weekend it could be possible. What do we all think about a weekend?

    That’s great that she got back to you! We’ve had mixed results with weekend workshops, especially if it costs $$. Did you discuss at all what kind of thing she’d be willing to do? Some sort of how-to or all about making youtube videos or something?

    Harry has run some one day, weekend meetings. Chair making and Sketch-up. I think a weekend, one day would be good, but would she have enough material for a whole day? I guess it all depends on the topic.

    Making a video would be interesting to me as I got a Go Pro camera from Santa. 🙂

    I just looked up her website, and it’s really interesting. We do weekends pretty well, and if there is a way to have her do a day or so, demoing how to make more than just one jig, it might be successful. Even better, but I don’t see how since everyone would need access to the power equipment, or come with some precut pieces, a shooting board and/or tenon jig seminar, or something like that.

    Tamara is an interesting woodworker. She seems to have a gift for reverse-engineering or deconstructing items into more manageable components. And look at how she bundles up to work in an unheated shop. Who has not done that? It does seem she principally uses power tools. Perhaps Harry or Corey could provide space for a Saturday. Since Tamara is a parent of younger children, a two-day gig could prove difficult.

    I think a two day gig would be over kill if we are just getting an oral presentation. If we are building something, than maybe longer is desired. What do people think they would like to hear in a presentation from her?

    Sorry about the misspelling of Tamar’s name; it is Tamar, not Tamara.

    We are long overdue for a one day Saturday (or Sunday) workshop. She would be great.

    I wonder if maybe her going into detail about what it takes to make a good youtube video could be interesting. I bet she has to plan the steps of a project more deliberately knowing it’ll be filmed.

    I wouldn’t mind hosting a event at the shop for a limited amount of people. I got enough benches(7) in the shop and the tools to make a jig or do a live demonstration.

    What topics should I ask her if she can do a presentation/seminar/workshop on a Saturday or Sunday?
