August 10, 2013 – Woodturning Tutorial

July 7, 2013

On Saturday, August 10 all members are welcome to participate in an informative, hands-on woodturning tutorial. Our instructor will be MGW member Gregg Parsons who has decades of woodturning experience.

There will be two sessions: advanced and beginners. The beginners session, which will be from 10:00-12:00 am, will more than likely focus on the basics: wood selection and sourcing, mounting a blank on the lathe, chisel and gouge sharpening, and tool use.

The advanced session will be from 12:30 to 2:30 pm. The content is yet to be determined, but will give members a chance to get some more practice.  Those who have experience on our lathe may want to just attend the afternoon session, but all are welcome to attend both. To give Gregg an indication what you are interested in learning about during the afternoon tutorial, please fill out the poll below.

Bring a chair, protective gear, a coffee and lets let’s make some sawdust! We plan to BBQ some hot dogs, so to help us know how many to cook for, please RSVP below.
