Southern Piedmont Woodturners
CONCORD — “Turning with a Twist” Club member Jack Reyome will demonstrate a process for making a goblet with a “twist” to the stem. Jack will show how to use woods of contrasting colors to create a stem with a special style and a beautiful result, which can be a gift for a special occasion or an intriguing item to sell. This project is one for an experienced turner who has not tried gluing up pieces of wood to achieve a spectacular result or for the less experienced turner who is looking to expand their skills with a project of proven attractiveness.
Southern Piedmont Woodturners meets on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 6:30 pm at their studio at 223 Crowell St. NW at the intersection with Kerr St. Members begin gathering at 5:30 pm for fellowship and sharing. The meeting normally ends by 9 p.m. Everyone is welcome, anyone with no experience with turning to professional turners. We can all learn from each other and enjoy this wonderful experience.
Over the next year we are planning several teaching/workshop sessions to teach a wide array of turning skills from how to select the wood to make a particular object, to how to sharpen tools, to make particular cuts to achieve a special effect and how to apply finishes to get the final look that makes the piece especially attractive.
