July 2013 Meeting Reminder

ReminderThe monthly meeting of the Classic City Woodturners will be on Monday, July 29, 2013 at the Construction Technology Lab at Clarke Central High School beginning at 6 PM.  The demonstrator for July is John Lucas.  He has been a guest of our club previously but, his program this time will be something that has not been done before.  He will use a router in combination with the lathe.  He will use the router to accomplish various effects on spindles and bowls.  The router is mounted differently than has been described in various articles and on You tube videos.  He will demonstrate the mounting of a platform on the tool rest and the mounting of his router on this platform.  He will demonstrate the use of his routed to flute turnings, to do inlays and other uses.  John is making a platform specifically for our lathe and the distance from the top of the banjo to the centerline of the headstock. The demonstration will include the use of the indexing feature for fluting or other routing where specific radial settings are required.

At our last meeting on June 24, President Lou Kudon challenged members to prepare a wall hanging using the techniques that our demonstrator, Jack Morse, used to enhance the wall hanging he had prepared.  The best turning, as determined by member vote, will receive a nice prize.

The club has been alerted to the possibility that we may loose our meeting place at Clarke Central HS.  This issue will be further discussed at this next meeting.  If anyone has suggestions of other places the club could meet, please be prepared to bring them up at the meeting.
