January 9 Rocky Mountain Woodturners meetingDave Hawley– Tips and Tricks
Dave Hawley will present a demonstration titled: “Tips and Tricks”: The presentation will cover tips and tricks that Dave has learned over the years from presentations, workshops (most recently the J. Paul Fennell workshop at Anderson Ranch), and Dave's extensive reading/viewing of club Library educational materials. The focus is on sharing information on creative tools and techniques that save time and money - many involving re-purposing of everyday materials. Dave's goal is to open up the thinking of newer turners, but also to ensure that even the most experienced turners come away with some fresh ideas. Dave envisions the presentation as fairly rapid-fire, with use of tools and turning on the lathe to reinforce points made.
