The demo at CoreSRQ will be turning a bowl from a board by Jim Weeks.
Our club has received a very generous donation of turning blanks from a turner who is no longer physically able to perform at the lathe. Included in this collection are some very desirable pieces, as well as one very large unfinished burl pot. These blanks will be available at the meeting on October 3 to anyone interested. If more than one member is interested in a particular piece, we will have a drawing for it. Members on Zoom can participate in a drawing by proxy, but otherwise you must be present. Don't miss out on this opportunity !
If you have any Wig Stands or Bowls that are to be donated, please bring to the Club Meeting.
Decorative Utility Bowls
In this session Trent will rough turn a bowl from green wood, discuss drying techniques including kiln drying and building your own kiln as well as very simple and basic techniques.
Then he will re-turn a dry bowl using specially ground tools to get as clean a cut as possible to cut down on sanding. I will then take that bowl and discuss and use lots of different decorative techniques including: carving techniques, bleaching, dying, painting, burning, sand blasting, and surface textures.
