The April 11, 2019 meeting of the Woodturners Guild of North Carolina will offer two opportunities for hands-on participation from our membership.
The meeting will open at 6:45 pm with our annual "Tip, Tricks and Jigs" presentation. Do you have or do something unique that you want to share with others? Maybe it is a special tool or tip that makes things a bit easier, or a technique for handling wood. Members are encouraged to present anything that relates to turning that may help others to be better turners.
Then after a short break, and in response to membership requests for a more in-depth gallery discussion, we will commence with "Show and Tell your Challenge".
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.
