Past Club Meeting:

Annual West Bay Woodturners Barbeque

The annual Club BBQ was again successful and fun.
This was our chance to meet socially and talk among ourselves about our turning experiences. The food was excellent thanks to Cutis Vose and others. Cuesta Park was a very pleasant venue.

Past Demonstrations

Trent Bosch - Wood Sculptor/Turner
Saturday May 19 2018

Trent

Trent is a master of wood turning combined with the artistry of carving and decoration.
He turned a hollow form which he carved to look like a flower bud into which he inserted an internal piece using boiling water and balloon trickery. Hollowing was done using a camera and video monitor to locate the cutting edge inside the piece.
He turned a platter, the edge of which he carved using a variety of air driven cutting, grinding and sanding tools.
He turned a bowl, the side of which he decorated using another variety of tools.

Demonstration photos are here. There are a large number but they are in sequence of the demo.
