A sawdust session is an opportunity for hands-on learning. The sessions
are generally open shop, occasionally focusing on a specific topic.
Sessions are held at members' shops, and plenty of lathes are available. On
really busy days, members 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.
If the session is scheduled to work on a particular project, the
designated resource person for that day will be available to demonstrate
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. If you are interested
in attending but are not a member, please consider joining our club!
Attendees should bring turning tools (if you have them), club name tag,
and eye protection (safety glasses at a minimum); full face shield recommended.
