I attended the AAW Virtual Symposium.  For a First effort it went very smoothly.  I hooked my laptop to my 65" big-screen TV.  The video was of excellent quality!   It was just like being there and since I was only 8 feet from the screen VERY CLOSE-UP!! Videos from the Symposium will be available on the AAW web site but only to registered attendees.  Sorry.

We showed a YouTube video on Fundamentals - Faceplates.  Well worth the 20 minutes to watch. 

Show and Tell: Many unusual and unique pieces.  July 2020 Show and Tell
