September 21 –

Remote demonstration by Lyle Jamieson.  Lyle is in Traverse City, MI and will be doing a remote demonstration on hollowing.

Lyle will concentrate on the skills needed to turn hollow forms.  Items covered will include, roughing, chucking methods, design considerations, boring bar uses, laser measuring techniques, vibration issues, preventing catches, torn out grain problems, reverse chucking and more.  Lyle’s demo can take on a lot of subjects depending on the participation of the viewers.  His focus will be on the process not the finished product.  The topics covered will be important for the beginning turner and challenge the advanced turner.  Its all about the fun, turning is no longer hard work.  Lyle’s goal is to open up possibilities and expand creativity.
