WGNC is pleased to welcome Jim Duxbury as our featured demonstrator for the March 14 monthly meeting. The meeting starting time is 6:45 PM. This was originally scheduled for September but was cancelled due to a hurricane threat.
Jim’s demonstration is titled Intersecting Spheres. Quoting Jim, “this demonstration is based on the geometric principals --- if two spheres of any size intersect each other the plane of intersection will be a perfect circle.
The demonstration will show details on how to layout all six equal sized spheres on any sized cube so that they intersect exactly to make the small open circles. Details to make the template that will be used to guide the cutting of each of the intersecting spheres will be shown.
When completed, highlights and accents can be added if so desired. These cubes have even been decorated and hung for unique, interesting Christmas ornaments or just as a conversation piece.

New from Glenn Lucas "Mastering Woodturning Series: No. 6 The Beaded Bowl"
The Beaded Bowl is an excellent project to refine the skills of the amateur woodturner. Using wood dimensions that are readily available, Glenn takes you step by step through making this beautiful bowl.
Clear instruction will help you make this otherwise challenging piece and the skills you will learn can be applied to turning any bowl. Turning the beads is shown using two different methods : a simple scraping technique for those new to turning, and, the skilled use of a spindle gouge with minimum of sanding.
Come check it out.
