Up Coming Meetings
September 8, 2016 RMWT Monthly Meeting
Stuart Batty – Understanding How Gouges Cut
October 6, 2016 RMWT Monthly Meeting
Cindy Drozda – Twisted Triange Box
A different “twist” on my multi-spindle-axis Triangular Box, this one is twisted, literally. Precise planning and layout, basic boxmaking, hollowing of a straight sided flat bottomed box, and other techniques combine to make an unusual project.
November 3, 2016 RMWT Monthly Meeting
Vince Wilson – Dixie Biggs' class highlights
My intent is to just do an overview of the power carving, wood burning and painting techniques Dixie covered in the class. I'll likely be carving a center piece for a box top.
I will emphasize power carving techniques, talk about which carving tools and burs she recommends, how to use dry brushing to color pieces and demonstrate several texturing methods including the use of the wood burner.
