Turning Southern Style, Sep 1 - 17, 2017

Now is the time to start thinking about the Turning SouthernStyle Woodturning Symposium in Dalton, GA Sep 15 - 17, 2017. What a great opportunity to see some great demonstrations, shop with the some of the premier woodturning vendors and hangout with a bunch of other woodturners. I already made my hotel reservation. More info at their website.

2 Guys, 2 Shops - a Video Collaboration

I had a great time working with fellow woodturner and YouTuber, Rick Morris, on a video series on setting up your woodturning shop.  Hope you will find this 3 part series useful. Parts one and three are on my channel and part 2 is on Rick's channel, RickTurns.

I came up with this idea several months ago and approached Rick with it. At that time we had never met although both of us were familiar with each others channel. This collaborative effort involved several collaborative shop visits with each other. Rick had lots of creative ideas and did all of the editing.

Atlanta WoodWorking Show 2017

I spent April 3, 2017 at the Atlanta Woodworking Show. I have been attending the WW show since before I retired. I usually hang out at the Georgia Association of Woodturners booth demonstrating woodturning and answering questions about woodturning and trying to get folks who have a lathe to connect with a woodturning guild of the American Association of Woodturners. This year I demonstrated at the Gwinnett Woodworkers booth. I had the opportunity to meet fellow YouTuber, Carl Jacobson, in person. I have watched his YouTube channel for years.
I did a video of the show from the perspective of a woodturner.
