October 2018 CCW Meeting Reminder

Fellow Woodturners, the next meeting of the Classic City Woodturners is Tuesday, October 2, 2018 at the Lyndon House Arts Center, 293 Hoyt St, Athens at 6pm.  Mark Sillay has been invited to be our demonstrator.  As you may remember, Mark has demonstrated for our club before on several occasions. For this meeting we are continuing on the “preparation for Christmas” theme and Mark will be turning two Christmas related pieces.  First, he will review his slicing technique and how to sharpen the detail gouge to perform this type of cutting.

The first piece he will turn will be an ornament using his “toothpick” technology.  This method simplifies the hollowing of the ornament.  His finale turning is always fascinating to watch.

The second piece will be an offset turning for a Christmas broach or other similar piece.

This presentation will be a good review for experienced turners and will be a new experience for new turners.  Remember to invite a quest and bring some wood for the raffle.  We need a good turnout of members and visitors.

FYI-Mark will bring some wood pieces for interested buyers.
