Bi-monthly Meeting
Wednesday, 19th September 2019


Our guest speaker Dana Spessart the NHLA’s chief grader was, as predicted, an extremely popular meeting and due to a 57 members and guests we had to relocate to the West Albert Room in the HAC. 

Dana’s presentation was engaging, amusing and very informative. After the video presentation everyone moved outside for a real hands on grading demonstration on full size boards of White Oak, Walnut, Cherry, Maple and Tulpiwood, kindly donated by member James Latham plc. This gave members an opportunity to see the practice and gain an appreciation of grading at speed while doing maths in fractions of inches at the same time!

A copy of Dana’s presentation is attached for download. 


The LONDON HARDWOOD CLUB continues present interesting, relevant and engaging topics like this to its members and guests at these bi-monthly lunch meetings. 

We look forward to seeing you on 13th November where we have Owen Dare of the Joinery Network presenting on the modified and engineered products in the Joinery Trade. This will  be a popular meeting, so please book early to avoid disappointment.
