January Demonstration
Gary Barnes
Three-Sided Vessel
Using Multi-Axis Method

Our January demonstration will feature Gary Barnes who will demonstrate how to turn a three-sided vessel using a multi-axis turning method. The sides of the vessel can be straight or twisted. In this informative demonstration, you will find out how to make the sides twist either clockwise or counterclockwise. 

The demo includes an easy way to locate the multi-axis mounting points to produce either straight sides, or the desired direction of twist. This technique can be used to make practical items such as salt and pepper shakers, as well as turnings that are more esoteric. The two photos below showcase examples of this unique turning method.

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. I will look forward to seeing you all at Woodcraft. Take care and best wishes to you and yours!
