July 11th, 2016 Meeting; Turning to Cutting (with Jack Wayne)
See you at the meeting! Questions to Jerry Wheeler (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Turning to Cutting
Although most start by scraping, cutting on the lathe opens up more vistas for the turner, offering faster wood removal, less friction, far smoother surfaces, and the ability to turn thinner walls.
Turner and teacher Jack Wayne will show us the basics of exactly how the cutting tool (gouges, skews, etc.) contacts the wood for efficient and smooth turning. This is a great way to learn the basics, refine your skills, or pick up some new tricks. If you have a lathe or want to get one, don’t miss this.
Jack Wayne has been the woodturning instructor at Woodcraft Seattle for 18 years, and a frequent club demonstrator in California, Oregon, Idaho, Washington, B.C. and Mexico. He also spent 20+ years as a shipwright and engineer. “Woodturning is my passion and obsession!”
