Introduction to Woodturning Workshop at Chattahoochee

Jerry Chandler and I conducted an all day Introduction to Woodturning Workshop at the Chattahoochee Woodturners Shop on March 26.  The focus was on basic spindle turning between centers using only a parting tool, spindle gouge and spindle roughing gouge.  Safety was emphasized along with sharpening and using these basic tools.  I think everyone enjoyed themselves and are more confident about turning on their  own. Lots of practice on beads and coves and finishing with a Frosty Ornament or an egg.This workshop also brought in two new chapter members.
L-R Garth Goodrich  (new member), Kevin Kelley, Dru Thomas (new chapter member), Jack Nelson, Susan Shortman and Jerry Chandler, my co-instructor. Not pictured is me, the photographer.
