 Turning small decorative “Christmas” trees

“I will put an emphasis upon the skew chisel, and will discuss and demonstrate one style of these trees with which I use the skew for the majority of the shaping.

We will have time for some practice turning. Members are encourage to bring their skew chisels and detail spindle gouge and also a narrow parting tool if they have them, and try some of my suggestions My tools will be available for member to try as well.

The object for this practice time, is not to learn every cut the skew can be used for, but to have some practice time for the specific cuts used to shape the trees.”

There will be several mini lathes to get one-on-one help and also have some fun !

Bring your FACE SHIELD, skew, detail gouge and thin parting tool 

NO wood raffle or show & tell
