Some of the members gathering before the April meeting begins

The required date change brought a smaller crowd to the meeting and a smaller show and tell collection

Jake Debski shows his latest square turning creation

Jim Hilburger explains the latest Stanko drive center design

Bob Harrington has been busy making pens practicing his skew techniques

Brian Mazuchowski, Paul's son, shows his sword turning

Paul Mazuchowski shows his fluted bowls, also the demonstration for the evening

After a short break, Paul gets the evenings demonstration on Fluting started

Here Paul shows one of the key ingredients to fluting, a good repeatable indexing system made per the plans in the latest AAW Journal

Most of the fluting is done with a sanding disk on an inexpensive air driven die grinder

While the turnout for the meeting was small, everyone stayed for the interesting demonstration

With his indexing w/ locking mechanism and work surface mounted, Paul's ready to layout his fluting

With the fluting layout planned and marked, Paul gets started cutting the first flute

While it does require a touch, the fluting is straight forward and much easier than by hand

The first flute rough cut and the blank indexed to the position for the next flute

Paul tips the work surface to mark and demonstrate curved fluting on the vessel

Using the same die grinder and sander, Paul creates the first curved flute

The same tools and techniques can be used to do top, bottom, and inside fluting

Here is an example of a bowl with inside fluting

With an explantion of the various sanding techniques, Paul finishes up a great presentation
