unus bonum rursus dignus alium
Announcing January's live online demonstration
January 12th, 2020, 7:00pm EST start
(doors open at 6:30pm)
Michael will present Inside-Out Turning
from his shop in Quakertown, PA
An inside-out turning is a spindle turning with both ends left square, which is then cut or separated into four equal pieces lengthwise. The four outside corners are rotated inward, resulting in four “windows” or silhouettes. The turned shape of the spindle dictates the shape of the silhouette and will produce a symmetrical pattern. An asymmetrical silhouette requires two different, but matched turnings.
Any simple outline drawing can be turned inside-out. Draw a center line through the design. For an asymmetrical design, the left half will be your first turning, the right half will be your second turning.
For this rotation we will be turning an asymmetrical design.
We will have a 50/50 Raffle Drawing this month. The winner will receive 50% of the monies collected.
- The cost of a ticket is $5.
- There will be one cash prize: 50% of the amount collected.
- Anyone who registers for the meeting is eligible to participate.
- You do not have to be present to win.
- If you win, we will either mail you a check or send the funds electronically via PayPal.
- 50% of the proceeds will go toward DelVal programs and activities.
- The drawing will be live at the end of the meeting. You do not have to be present to win.

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.
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.
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.
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.
MEMBERSHIP AND DUES:
Membership is open to all interested in woodturning. Annual dues are $ 25.00 per person. Dues are valid for the calendar year starting January 1st. Dues for the half year of July to December are $12.50 per person.
Members are strongly encouraged to join the American Association of Woodturners. It publishes a great quarterly magazine about woodturning and an annual directory of members and resources and it organizes annual symposiums. The AAW offers liability insurance for all club organized activities to AAW members.
