Upcoming Events

Demonstrations

Demo in progress

A demonstration is a prime part of every meeting. These monthly demos most often showcase the skills of one of our own members, but on some occasions we invite nationally-known turners to spice things up a bit.

January 18, Hollow Forms and Carving—Jim Bumpas and Ron Bishop examine hollow forms and carving techniques.

February 15, The Jig is Up—Join us for a look at some popular jigs to facilitate your turning.

March 15, Segmented Turning—Explore this fascinating world with Bob Silkensen, Terry Moore, and Bill King.

Challenges

We will hold four turning challenges in 2018. Each challenge will coincide with a monthly meeting. Entries will be (usually) judged by lottery, and winners will receive a gift certificate and be immortalized in the Richmond Woodturners newsletter!
