Southern Maine Woodturners Fighting Hunger

This Thanksgiving weekend, November 26 and 27, skilled artisans from the Southern Maine Woodturners Association will be handcrafting wooden utility bowls all day long at Rockler Woodworking and Hardware Store in South Portland. You’ll see the entire bowlmaking process . . . from tree to bowl. You can even purchase these beautiful one-of-a-kind bowls for yourself or as Holiday gifts. Most sell for under $30! And all your money goes to Maine’s Good Shepherd Food Bank. Here’s your chance to meet some friendly woodturners, ask them questions, and maybe even see your own bowl being made. Come to Rockler, on Gorham Road, South Portland, near the Olive Garden, this Saturday, Nov. 26, 9-5 and Sunday, Nov. 27, 11-4.
