Sawdust Sessions

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.
