Craig Timmerman
Arched Bowl
Description:
Our artist-demonstrator this month is Craig Timmerman from Austin TX. Craig’s specialties include hollow forms, spheres and non-round turnings. Craig first began turning after taking a class at a local store in 1998. A note to our beginning/novice woodturners, we all began our journey in woodturning with little or no skills. It is the learning and practice that leads to skilled expertise. Enjoy the journey. We have asked Craig to turn an “Arched Bowl” during this demonstration. A PDF file on the steps is available on Craig’s website (www.armadillowoodworks.com/demos.html) If time permits, he will also turn a sphere.

Jeff Brockett
Basket Illusion
Description:
Jeff writes: "The first time I saw David Nittman’s basket illusion pieces I was blown away and thought “how does he do that?” Several years ago I had the opportunity to take a class with Harvey Meyer and learned the techniques required to create Basket Illusion turned pieces of wood art. My work is heavily influenced by Native American Indian baskets, stained glass windows and kaleidoscope patterns. My wife is my design critic and helps keep me on the straight and narrow path."

Rick Cannon
Texturing and Paint
Description:
Video produced by MSWG. You can see the video on YouTube Rick Cannon will show you how to transform what may appear to be a “ho hum” woodturning into something distinctive and uniquely yours. The transformation will be achieved using a variety of off-the-lathe techniques involving power carvers, power sanders, pyro carvings, pyrography, acrylic paints, and brushes. There will not be any actual woodturning - this demo is all about Rick's off-the-lathe techniques.

Christmas Brunch and Auction
Description:
We had 32 attend the annual Christmas party. We missed many members and guests who have attended in the past because of concerns over Covid-19 and variants. MSWG truly understands and respect these concerns. The MSWG board will be considering doing more to include members virtually.
With that said the Christmas party was a success. First there was plenty of time for socializing and people catching up on the past couple years. Click on the photos to enlarge.

Rick Stone
Ins and outs of spindle turning.
Description:
Rick Stone was our demonstrator discussing the ins and outs of spindle turning. He covered all the standard woodturning tools and then showed that spindle turning could be done using other items such as shovel in the photo. He also used an ax, a tire iron, and a sharpened screw driver. He does not recommend using these non-traditional items and included them in the demo just for fun.
