May 2017 CCW Meeting Reminder

Fellow Woodturners, the May meeting of CCW is scheduled for Tuesday, May 2nd.  It begins at 6 PM at the Lyndon House Arts Center, 293 Hoyt St, Athens.

For our May 2, 2017 meeting we will be having a clinic on sharpening so bring your gouges and skews.  Our program demonstrator will be Ken Rizza from Woodturners Wonders.  Ken will bring his grinder setup with the CBN wheels.  This will be a hands on sharpening exercise.  The lathe will be set up so that each participant can practice with his or her sharpened tool.  Skews are particularly difficult to sharpen but with Ken’s guidance this is made simple.  Ken will also demonstrate honing of the skew with a CBN hone.  This hone can put a razor sharp edge on a skew.

Ken will also demonstrate other products he has including various tool handles, sanding system for bowls and other turnings; his special lights that really can light up turnings and other items.  Ken will have most of his products there for sale and can accept any type of payment.

We need a good turnout for this hands on demonstration, so remember to not only bring your tools to be sharpened but also be sure to bring a guest and some wood for the raffle!
