At WGNC we sometimes get so caught-up with the latest trends & techniques in woodturning that we can skip over the basics, the things relative newcomers need to see and understand in order to join us in reveling in all the other good stuff.
To that end our July meeting will be a back-to-basics demonstration on turning a simple capsule box. Former president and current VP Norm Cloutier will share a video he's prepared based on beginner classes he's taught at both the Cary and NCSU craft centers.
The video is only about 40 minutes long and has no audio, but dozens of "supers" -- helpful text overlays with information about the steps, tools, and current speed of both the lathe and video playback.
Norm will speak through the video presentation and stop frequently to add depth and answer any questions as they arise, so feel free to interrupt.
