May 2018 CCW Meeting Reminder

Fellow Woodturners,

    Our next meeting is Tuesday, May 1, 2018 at the Lyndon House Arts Center, 293 Hoyt St, Athens.  The meeting begins at 6 PM.  The demonstrator for the month is John Lucas who is a nationally recognized wood turner.   John is a retired University photographer.  He has been turning wood for about 35 years and has made a “ little of everything”.    He is known for his hand mirrors , ornaments and miniatures   He will demonstrate how to turn a hand mirror with an off center design as well as an off-center pendant.   John has written many articles for American Woodturner, More Woodturning, Woodturning Design, Woodturning Fundamentals and Woodturning.   John has demonstrated at National symposiums as well as many regional symposiums and clubs.  He is also known for turning one of the smallest goblets in the world which stands about as high as 5 human hairs.    

Take a look at the attached pictures showing hand mirrors that John has provided.

John has demonstrated for our club in the past and always has an excellent program.

Both the mirror and  pendant should be very popular items  for children and grand children to give for mother’s day presents.   As time permits John will discuss  finishing his turned items using an airbrush spray system.

Plan on being at this meeting and lets have a big turnout for John.  He is donating his time for this demonstration in order to help our club.   

Bring a friend and bring items for our raffle.

Also remember to bring dues for 2018.  Dues are $30 for an individual or $35 for the family – a true bargain.
