June 2014 Demo


“Open Shop and Tips

by Everyone


Are you ready for another exciting Open Shop with Hot Dogs, Swap and Shop, and Tips and Tricks Super Thursday on June 26th?

Starting at 3 PM until 6 PM our Open Shop will be your opportunity to visit with our Mentors and learn hands on about the things in which you are interested. There will be a number of lathes stationed about our meeting room with someone who can help you with just about anything you want to learn. There will be a couple of sharpening stations with Mentors to help with your tool grinding issues. Several lathes stations will feature everything from bowl techniques, skew techniques, spindle issues, hollow form techniques, segmented turning issues, and much, much more.

Hot Dogs and drinks will be available for purchase to ward off that nagging hunger you might get during the long special day.

Got surplus tools, and any item of value that you don’t need any more? Put a price on them and offer them for sale during the Open Shop or the meeting to follow.

If you have Tips or Tricks you think others might like to use, call John Horn at 817-485-7397 so he can arrange to put you on the program for the club meeting following the Open Shop. We would like to hear from you about the things you have found useful around the shop. We all have some idea or item we can show to others that would make their woodturning experience better. Your presentation should not be more than about 5 minutes or so because we expect a number of our members to show a wide variety of items or ideas that others may not have experienced. Even if your idea is not your own, but you found it useful, share it with the rest of us. Help us celebrate the experiences you have had in your woodturning adventure.
