Central Ohio Woodturners, November 2007

The Central Ohio Woodturners meets on the second Tuesday of the month. The November meeting featured simultaneous demonstrations of small turnings to make for gifts. I arrived to the meeting a bit on the late side - just in time for Barbara Crockett, the club prez, to invite me to do the show-and-tell table. I haven't done that in a long time, so it was kind of fun.

This and the next couple of pictures show most of the turnings on the show-and-tell table.

Walt Betley did a demo on sea urchin Christmas ornaments.

J. R. Beall visited the club to demonstrate his new ornamental pen jig.

It's always great to have J. R. come to a club meeting.

This is his new rig. He had previously made an ornamental attachment for a minilathe. This is a stand alone unit.

One of our club members demonstrated bottle stoppers from a single piece of wood.

Here's Walt Betley turning the icicle for a sea urchin ornament.

Ruth Thomas demonstrating miniature acorn boxes.

Don Lehman demonstrated segmented bottle stoppers.

The beginner's corner was on pen turning.

A view of the members having a good time.

The guy in the center is Dennis. He's blind, but turns some amazing things. This month he had a pepper mill on the show-and-tell table, which he had turned using a skew. He's an amazing guy and it' always a delight to see how he explores a piece by touch. He's examining Ruth's small acorn box in this pic.
