March Discussion/Demonstration

Bowl Turning with Paul Kendall

We are fortunate to have a special guest demonstrator at our March meeting. Paul Kendall teaches basic bowl turning classes at Woodcraft. He will be demonstrating how to turn a basic standard bowl and a natural edge (bark rim) bowl. If you have a bowl that you have questions about, bring it to the meeting. Paul will be staying after the meeting to answer any questions you have about bowl turning, or about his training classes at Woodcraft.

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 Pete at 713-299-7556, or me (Steve) at 713-826-0046 Cell. I'm looking forward to seeing you all at Pete’s. Take care and best wishes to you and yours!

Steve Russell
LSWA President
