Keith Burns
Carter Hollow Roller
Description:
The most unique and innovative part of the system is the Torque Arrestor which holds the boring bar captive. It provides the smoothest and easiest action I’ve ever seen. The provided handle can also be use
with any un-handled tool you have. The Arrestor mounts in the banjo and to gain more space to the outside providing a greater angle of attack, you simply move the banjo.

Charlie Shrum
Norfolk Island Pine & Carving Concepts
Description:
In the morning Charlie will give a presentation about the characteristics of Norfolk Island Pine and the process and tools he uses to create and shape his pieces. The afternoon session will get more into the carving of these pieces. So, bring some lunch money and spend the day with us. For those wanting to do some “hands on” with Charlie, he will be available at Joel’s house on Sunday. The cost for this all day “hands on” will be $40 for the blank of wood and $350 divided up by how many members attend,
so bring your carving tools and let’s chip some wood. For those who do not have any carving tools, he will bring some extra. This promises to be informative and exciting.

Turning Green Bowls
Description:
Joel brought several pieces of Bradford Pear from a tree he felled the previous day. Joel suggested twice turning the bowl using a gauge of 1” wall thickness per 10” in diameter. Joel stores his rough bowls in a plastic bag with shavings. Joel demonstrated the use of several gouges with different bevel grinds to
achieve a clean cut and avoid compressing fibers or tear out. Joel brought several large bowls showcasing his turning abilities and selection of native woods indigenous to our area. During the afternoon he mentored new turners during the hands-on session of the meeting.
