Threading for Woodturners

We received a detailed demonstration of cutting threads in turned boxes from Dennis Paullus at our January meeting. It is very cool to be able to add that additional touch to a lidded box by including a threaded top.

Live Remote Demonstration - Lyle Jamieson
Description:
This was our first attempt at live remote streaming from the home shop of our demonstrator. Lyle is an
early adopter of this new approach and did an outstanding job. Two-way communication allowed us to be actively engaged with the presentation, allowing questions, and answers real time. It was almost like standing next to him.

Larry Sefton
Carving and Embellishment
Description:
This time he walked us through the tools and techniques he uses to power carve his turned pieces. As
usual, his presentation was well organized and thorough. Starting with the small Proxon power carver then working his way up to very powerful pneumatic tools used in the stone carving industry, he showed the benefits and limitation of each tool. This was another presentation that will cost me a lot of money trying to assuage my tool envy. Also, during his presentation he used some “golden dividers” which garnered a lot of interest.

Sam Dawson
Stabilizing Wood for Turning
Description:
Many thanks to Sam Dawson for his tutorial on “Stabilizing” and “Casting” techniques last month. It turns out that the old adage “life is too short to turn crappy wood” is not true if you are willing to apply some of the techniques, he showed us. “Stabilizing” can turn wood that is too soft or porous into a hard, turnable wood. The creative use of dies and resins bring even more options to the table that will change boring to interesting, and sometime, with the proper application of creativity, even exciting.
