New information on Turning Bee

Postby loyd » Mon Mar 11, 2019 2:24 pm

Looks like the plan has come together. 8-) 8-) 8-)
May 18 -- Turning Bee; Larry Wendland's shop.
The annual Tom Cowen Memorial turning bee will be on May 18 2019 at 0800. A fee of $10.00 per person will include lunch and help offset cost of bowl blank. Club will supply coffee and donuts also drinks for the day. Bring a folding chair and turning tools if you have them. A count of attendees is needed as early as possible. Sign up will start at the April meeting. If you miss the April meeting you can sign up by sending an email to Larry Wendland at culets@gmail.com


A meeting of the mentors will be right after the regular April Club meeting.

Turning Bee is where beginners and novices go to get some, supervised, hands on training on how to use turning tools and the lathe. We use bowls to help folks know how to do basic things like holding and use of the tool and operating the lathe safely. Sometimes, when there is interest enough, there are seminars and workshops to go deeper into the craft.

The turning bee might be a good place to introduce sharpening the tools as well as turning skills. Shouldn't be too hard to get a couple grinders there. People who bring there own tools could get tips on sharpening them as well as how to use them.

Good idea. It wouldn't be too difficult to set up either.

Good Idea, there are always people waiting for their turn at a lathe.
