Eric Lofstrom - Skew Skills
For our October Demonstration, WGNC is happy to welcome back Eric Lofstrom.
Mark your calendar. Eric is a great presenter and when it comes to the skew, which will be the topic of his demonstration, this tool must come out of the drawer!
It is fundamental to turning and is what many a production turner learn to use before any other tool.
To quote Eric "The skew is possibly the most versatile spindle turning tool, capable of creating the finest cut surface. The most challenging part of using the skew is to understand & mind the laws of physics. Its simplistic design will highlight your ability to present the tool’s edge. ALL basic SPINDLE cuts can be done with the Skew: Planing, Peeling, Paring, Vee, Rolling, Coving

Breakout Sessions are Back
WGNC is happy to announce the return of Breakout Sessions. To enhance the value of these sessions to members, we have established a coordinator to help identify topics, hosts and schedules that are aligned with the interests of members.
As Session details are confirmed, the information will be posted on this web page so that a member can look at available subjects and associated details, and then when a topic of interest is found, simply click on the button to sign up.
Breakout sessions are generally free of charge and are offered on a first come first serve basis. Scheduled sessions will be created as Events and will show up on the Home Page in the "A Look Ahead" table, on the "Events Calendar" and on the "Breakout Session" selection under the "Resources" menu .
