Sawdust Sessions

A sawdust session is an opportunity for hands-on learning.  The session will either be an open shop or a specific topic.   Those who have a portable lathe are asked to bring them and an appropriate chuck.   The club has portable lathes that will be available.  We expect to share the lathes so that all who want to turn will get some lathe time.

Any member is welcome to come and bring tools to work with or projects that are causing you a problem.  Help will be available.  When the session is scheduled to work on a particular project the designated resource person for that day will be available to show specific techniques and answer questions.  The format will be hands-on with informal discussion for clarification.  Normally a sawdust session will not involve a formal presentation such as we have at monthly meetings.  Sawdust sessions are a members only event.

Sawdust sessions will be announced at our monthly meetings and a signup sheet will be available to signup for the event. This is a members only activity. If you are interested, but are not a member, please consider joining our club and signing up for the sawdust session. Attendees should plan to bring a portable lathe and turning tools (if you have them), club name tag, eye protection, a brown bag lunch, and a chair to sit on during breaks.
