Share

Keystone Woodturners

Keystone Woodturners is a chapter of the American Association of Woodturners. We share the purpose of providing education and information to those interested in woodturning. The Club was founded in 1996 and has grown to over 60 members. We meet monthly on the third Wednesday of the month. Check out the other tabs on this website for examples of what we and our members have been doing and for other information about the Club.

November  Meeting

Our meeting this month will be held at Joe McCann’s shop on Wednesday November 18, 2015 beginning at 7 PM.

Meeting Agenda:

Welcome: Les Bailey – President

Show and Tell and President’s Challenge

Our members bring in their latest work, describe how they made it and discuss the problems they experienced and how they solved them. This is always a great learning experience for all.

Demonstration –  Christmas Ornaments

Club Member Harry Pye has been involved in turning unique Christmas tree ornaments each year for the past 11 years. At this meeting Harry will share his secrets for coming up with unique ornaments and will show some of his previous creations. He will also turn a snowman Christmas tree ornament. For the demo, Harry has chosen a small snowman. There are two variations of this ornament, one with a high silk hat and one with a derby hat. If time permits, he will also turn a small, handled bell. Harry will also discuss how he finishes his ornaments.
