August 6, 2013 - Demonstration by Donald Olsen

Handout available here: http://goo.gl/fR2ozy

We’ve invited back Donald Olsen who presented the Crotch slideshow last time to do a “hollowing from the bottom” for us this time. He will start the presentation with a slideshow followed by lathe work.

Please take this week and next to make a woodturning or woodworking or woodcarving piece to Show-and-Tell at our meeting. Challenge yourself by making a miniature piece.

If you have wood or other wood turned items for the raffle, please bring those.

Please come at 6:30 p.m. for the business meeting followed by Show-and-Tell, raffle and demo.

Daniel, our President, dropped by the Eight Legs Gallery in Waxhaw (the white house surrounded by art, on the curve opposite Fox's Pizza and the old brick factory on Hwy 75). There are many artistic pieces in there and he will find himself going back to draw inspiration. Only a few woodturning pieces were on display. Most all these items are for sale and the shop owner said that to display them, there is no charge and they will pull them inside before the night. They take a 35% consignment fee from the sale, so make sure you add that much before you mention your price to them. The owner would like to see more woodturning pieces displayed.
