July 12, 2018 RMWT Monthly Meeting (Note change from normal meeting day)

Dan Swaim - Segmented Turning: Efficiency and Safety

Dan Swaim is a retired mechanical engineer residing in Fort Collins, CO. A wood worker for forty years, he has been a turner for about four years. He is a member of the Rocky Mountain Wood Turners.

Segmented wood turning offers great flexibility in design and wood usage, buts has some inherent risks and is often thought to be too time-consuming for the casual turner. With a focus on safety, this demonstration covers various efficiencies through design, cutting and gluing, mounting and turning processes that streamline the various tasks. A focus on grain selection provides insight on how to bet "a better bowl" both in construction and appearance.

Jimmy Clewes - Tri-corner Bowl with Lid

10am - 4pm at the Loveland Woodcraft. Cost is $175 per person to be paid to Woodcraft.

Tri corner bowl with lid. This is a really interesting turning, mounted corner to corner in the lathe, you have to look and cut to “Ghost line” to see the shape and form the bowl. The lids adds a little extra!!

Jimmy Clewes

Jimmy is not your ordinary woodturner. Upon a first meeting one would think of him as a renegade, a free thinker and not within the stereotypical image of a woodturner. His charming British style, unending wit, creative mind and magnetic personality are only some of the attributes that make him popular in the woodturning demonstration circuit.

Jimmy is on the Register of Professional Woodturners in the United Kingdom and a member of the American Association of Woodturners. He has over 22 years of experience in woodturning and woodworking. The demand for his services as a freelance demonstrator and teacher takes him all over the world including his homeland of the United Kingdom, Europe, Canada, Norway, Finland, New Zealand, Belgium, Australia.
