Vince Wilson – Turning a Box with Pewter Inlay
This project demonstration will highlight one of the methods for incorporporating metal into your work that I will be covering during my "Metal Accents for Wooden Boxes" symposium demonstration.
Woodworking has been a major interest of mine for many years now. My early training came from college level woodworking and furniture design courses in San Diego, while my later training came from courses taken in the Fine Woodworking Department at Red Rocks Community College (RRCC) where I currently teach.
While I enjoy making projects from furniture to small craft items, turning projects are by far my favorites. I feel nothing highlights and celebrates the beauty of wood quite the same way as turnings. In addition to turning wood, I also like to incorporate metal into some of my pieces through the use of metal spinning and other techniques.
Currently I run my own small woodworking business and teach courses in, depending on the semester, general woodworking, furniture making, and turning. For more, visit www.facebook.com/glacialstudio
