July 5,2016 Special Dueling Demonstration-How to Hollow

  It's almost that time again.  We will be meeting on Tuesday, July 5 at 6:30 PM.  As per usual, Hunter House is the venue. 

  This time we'll be entertained by the duo of Rick Erexson and Gary Janes who will discuss and demonstrate their shop-made hollowing rig.  This demo should be a really useful one as we'll be able to see how an inexpensive hollowing rig can be made in our own shops.

  In addition to the demo, we'll be holding a raffle of woodturning-related items. Tickets  are $1 each or 6 for $5).  If you have any items you wish to donate to the raffle, I'll chip in an extra raffle ticket for each item you donate - up to three items.

  Following the raffle we'll draw for the Turner of the Month item.

  Guests are more than welcome; no experience necessary.

  Come a few minutes early and enjoy conversation with fellow turners as well as a cup of coffee or a soft drink.

  For newer folks, Hunter House is located at 13428 Providence Road in Weddington, NC.  If using a GPS, use Matthews as the town.  It is about three miles south of I-485, Exit 57.

  Starting in August, our demos will be featuring a "Back to Basics" theme.  We'll be discussing the tried and true methods of turning bowls, boxes, spindles and other items.  If you are new to turning, or just want to brush up on your techniques, these demos are right up your alley.

  If you would like to be part of the Back to Basics demo team, let me know and we can work you into the rotation.  We're especially looking for someone to demo spindle techniques.

See you on the 5th.

Cheers,

John P. Walsh
President Waxhaw Woodturners
