BAW Fest & Party – August 13

Uncategorized No Comments
Since Darrel cancelled his turning day, I am opening my shop to all club members and their guests.  We are having a picnic here that day anyway, so we would welcome the turning club to come enjoy the farm, some turning, great food, and my bright happy sparkling personality .. . .
They can come as early as 10 and stay until the moon comes up; we are having music provided by the Lexitones Uke group (Tracey plays) and a wide variety of friends.
All are welcome; I plan to have some turning activities/demos relating to hollowing, bowl turning, and more acorn/thread chasing.  I have a Trent Bosh hollowing jig, and people will be able to give it a demo drive.  People can bring their pieces with the outside turned..if they drill the depth hole, make sure it is at least 1.5 inches for better observation.
We will provide cooked meat–so others can bring what is convenient for them in salads, desserts, chips/dips, etc.  Let’s have another party!

We had a good time eating and eating and wood turning and playing here on the farm. We concentrated on bowl coring and threaded lid boxes/acorn boxes. Made a mess of the shop but we had fun and the chickens will have fun with all of the chips to scratch through. Here is a link to some pictures: https://goo.gl/photos/yWjUhe8Vie4QGr2h9
