April Demonstration – Gary Barnes
“Inside-Out Turning Demonstration”

This month’s demonstration will feature Gary Barnes. Have you ever wanted to know how to hollow out the inside of a turning with both ends closed? Gary will show you how the magic happens in this month’s woodturning demo. Inside-Out turning techniques allow you to do this, as well as other special shapes and forms.

One example is the hollow X-mas ornament Gary brought to a recent Show-n-Tell and later sold at the Panther Creek Art and Craft Show (see picture above). A surprising variety of turnings can be done using this innovative technique. Gary did an introduction to Inside-Out turning a few years ago, but only a few club members were able to see the demo due to a scheduling issue.

He will briefly recap his previous demo and add to it, so there will be lots of new material for everyone to see. If you’re looking for a new way to challenge yourself when turning, you don’t want to miss Gary’s demonstration.

Invite your woodturning friends: Please invite any of your woodturning friends who you think may be interested in joining our club. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me (Steve) at 713-826-0046. I will look forward to seeing you all at Woodcraft. Take care and best wishes to you and yours!
