Michael Alguire Demonstration

 Comments from those in attendance indicated that we really enjoyed and learned from Michael Alquire's demonstration.  Keep second Tuesday reserved on your calendars for the remainder of the year.  We plan on having more Zoom demonstrations.  Next will be September 8th, 2020.  Look for an update posted here.  

 

 

Here is his description of the demonstration:

I will demonstrate how I create my intricate signature piece “Wheel of Delicacy” with the step-by- step process of prepping and turning the blank, sanding, then aligning the pieces for glue-up. This demo will inspire you while taking you to the next level in woodturning!

MEETINGS:

 

DelVal Turners meets virtually using Zoom on the 2nd Tuesday of each month. Meeting topics include show and tells, demonstrations, and discussions on various turning related subjects, such as tool sharpening, sanding, finishing, chucks, jigs, marketing your crafts etc. New members are encouraged to contribute new ideas to help create an interesting and challenging program. Our demonstrations are most often given by nationally and internationally renowned turners and artists.

 

MEETING TIME AND PLACE:

 

Our meetings start at 7PM and take place virtually using the Zoom conference service. 

 

OTHER EVENTS: Philip Hauser runs a great hands on open house at his workshop on the  3rd Tuesday of each month. The open house is an informal setting where members discuss different issues such as tool use, tool sharpening,  wood preparation, and turning techniques. Phil and other members often demonstrate these techniques. See Member's Area for Phil's contact information. 

Due to Covid 19 restrictions Phil has suspended the open house. 

 

 

FUNDRAISING ACTIVITIES:

 

A 50/50 raffle is conducted during most meetings to augment the club’s finances. We also run Hands on Workshops (HOWs)  once each year,  taught by  volunteer experienced members of the club in their homes. Various specialties are covered.

 

DEMONSTRATIONS:

 

The club invites some of the best woodturners in the world to demonstrate at our club meetings . Woodturners freely share their skills with all,  thus providing novice to expert turners with a wealth of information. 

 

OTHER BENEFITS:

 

The club will often offer information about wood that has become available and tools for sale. We also inform members of different woodturning events in the area and upcoming symposiums.
