December Discussion/Demonstration:

Hollowing an Olivewood Chalice

Pete Allen
This month's demonstration will feature the continuation of the Olivewood Chalice demo that was started last month by our Vice President, Pete Allen. Pete will have two Olivewood Chalices ready for you to try hollowing the interior of the Chalice using the Easy Rougher/Finisher tools. Pete will also have spindle blanks on hand, so you can try your hand at using these tools. Why not step up and make some shavings!

Remember to bring some of your recent projects: Be sure to bring some of your recent turned projects for our Show and Tell, or Show and Ask session. This can be a completed turning, or one that you are still working on. During our Show and Tell, you will have the opportunity to show your turning to the group and tell us a little about how you turned it, what finish you used and if you encountered any challenges when turning, sanding, or finishing the piece. Everyone in the club is interested in what you've been doing at the lathe. If you need help with a project you're working on, bring it and let's discuss it during the Show and Ask session. There is a lot of experience in the club and everyone is always happy to help.

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 Cell, or Pete Allen at (713) 299-7556. I'm looking forward to seeing you all at Woodcraft. Take care and best wishes to you and yours!

Steve Russell
LSWA President
