This month's meeting we will have a "Show & Tell". Please bring in something/anything you have turned, whether its finished, in-process, or in pieces. Bring in your work to share with the club.
This month John Puckhaber and Buren Gilpin will be giving us a demonstration on different sharpening techniques along with the benefits and features of using a CBN wheel. Please feel free to bring your tools that need sharpening but don't expect Buren or John to sharpen them for you! This is where you will learn to sharpen your tools correctly.
This month we will feature Sonny Jones. His demonstration will be on closed segmented turnings. He will show how to cut segments and the jigs he uses for cutting segments accurately. How to join the segments together successfully into rings, and how to join those rings into a segmented vessel or bowl that may be turned on the lathe. He will be showing a number of shop-made jigs that he uses in this process.
The demo also features a small section on using waste wood to create platters. And, if time permits, he will expand the demo and show how to use these steps to create staved vessels which will necessitate the use of even more shop-made jigs.
