Jacques Vesery visits Central Ohio Woodturners

Jacques Vesery came to visit our club to do a hands-on class and an all day demo. We had the demo at Wood Werks, and there was a good turnout. Everyone enjoyed the day very much. Jacques started out with a demonstration of how he makes a hollow form. Then he gave a slide presentation to talk about his work and inspirations. After lunch he demonstrated carving and woodburning techniques to make his surface enhancements, and then he ended the day with painting and gold leaf techniques. Thanks, Jacques!

Jacques started the demo by talking about wood preparation.

Here is his swept-back grind on his small bowl gouge.
