Hands on Woodturners Visit

Click on thumbnail for full size image

On a recent trip to Florida, I had the chance to visit the Hands on Woodturners

I missed their regular meeting but had a chance to attend the Sunday evening "Sawdust Session"

Ron Browning holds the Sawdust Sessions in his shop for any of the members who want to attend

The goal is to turn, make chips, learn from each other, talk turning, and socialize

Ron demonstrates on his Stubby lathe and usually turns green wood

Checking the depth of a bowl being rough turned with a home build laser gauge

Ron finishes up the bowl he has been working on ...

and it goes around for everyone's examination

Despite the heat, the shop is comfortable with the fan running

The session moves outside for a bit of blank cutting

Ron marks out the tree crotch to make the most of the "pretty wood" ...

and proceeds to cut a few platter and bowl blanks

The trailer equipped with a hoist is used to bring home wood finds

Checking out the first piece cut off

Cutting the rest of the pieces

Enough pieces cut to keep everyone out of trouble for a bit

The pieces are loaded up and toted up to the garage for preparation

A platter blank is trimmed up and ready for mounting on the lathe

A couple of days earlier, this tree was standing

The platter blank is trued up
