Multi-Axis Spindles - J Clark
Have you been interested in exploring multi-axis turning techniques, but it all seemed a bit confusing?  Or, you have tried multi-axis turning, but you just are not achieving the desired results? If so, this demonstration will provide helpful solutions to the challenges of multi-axis turning. The March demonstration, by Jason Clark, will focus on explaining and simplifying his approach to multi axis turning. 

The first half of the demonstration will cover turning a variety of multi-axis spindles, including the basic mechanics of multi-axis turning.

The second half of the demonstration will present the methods used for turning a lidded box that is turned on 3 axes, so that the outcome has a 120-degree twist running along the length of the box.

The demonstration will explore:

  • The main elements of multi-axis turning
  • A simple process for the layout of the center points that induce the twist.
  • A method to control direction of the twist.
  • Turning sample spindles that feature various multi axis techniques and designs.
  • Getting comfortable working with multiple centers and working with interrupted cuts.
  • The basic steps for turning the multi-axis lidded box.

We hope you will join us Thursday evening March 11th for this informative demonstration of this unique technique.  Connection instructions using Zoom are included below.

About our Demonstrator:
Clark has been heavily involved in Woodturning for nearly 2 decades being primarily self taught in a modest 2 car garage in his spare time. He is a demonstrator, teacher,artist, husband, and father.  Woodturning is his passion and he is an ambassador for all aspects of woodturning as well as wood art in general.

Jason has given demonstrations on a wide variety of topics including his signature Saturn bowls, lidded boxes, jigs and tricks, vacuum chucking, multi axis turning, and more.  He also teach hands-on classes including classes for beginners and a hands-on class for making his signature Saturn Bowl.

His Inspiration:  “I strive to feature the natural beauty of the wood.  The grain, the figure, and as much as possible the natural color of the wood.  My job is to highlight what already exists within the wood and present it in a way that showcases what mother nature has provided.”
