Keystone Woodturners – August 2017

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 75 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.


August Meeting, Wednesday, August 16, 2017 @ 7:00PM

This Month’s Agenda:

Welcome by Bob Zrebeic,  President, Keystone Woodturners…brief notes of interest to all members.

Demonstration:  Harry Pye,”Turning a Goblet”

Harry is and always has been a very active member of the Keystone Woodturners.  He’s  an accomplished turner and, over the years, has conducted many demonstrations for both Keystone and the Lehigh Valley Club.  We always come away with valuable tips and techniques from Harry’s demos and his goblet demo  should be no exception.

Show and Tell
Bring in your latest turned item and tell the members about it.  Wood type, finish, and any challenges you had with the piece are of interest to us all.  We all enjoy hearing about our members’ turned items. And seeing what you’ve accompished often gives us ideas to try ourselves.

Have something that you no longer need, use or that’s just cluttering up your shop or maybe your liquor cabinet?   Bring it in for the raffle!  Surely, someone will see its value just the way you once did.   Remember, the raffle provides major funding for our club with the money it raises!



Keystone Woodturner display works at Ludington Library Display Windows –  “Wonderful Plus” rating

We have had an overwhelmingly positive response from our members, the public, and the librarians at the Ludington Library in downtown Bryn Mawr.
