Slideshow
Show & Tell Feb 2021

Join us, Thursday March 18th, for a tour of our new website where we will walk through  the different web pages pointing out some of the functions and features along with answering any questions. Following the new website tour, we will  move directly into our regular monthly virtual Show & Tell session. 


As always, all WGNC members and their guests are welcome to spend an evening with fellow woodturners as we continue to explore and share members' projects, ideas, issues and yes, even those shop disasters.


 

The forum is intended for all levels of woodturners and is a safe and respectful place to solicit input and advice, regardless of your experience level. So, come join us for this enjoyable interactive session.


 

Nothing to share this month? No problem.  Come join us anyway and be part of the interaction.  You will not regret the fun you will have or the tips, tricks, ideas and other turning tidbits we are exposed to each session.





Submission guidelines:

  • Email your submissions to wgnc@ncturning.com .
  • The deadline for submissions is 6:00 PM on Wednesday, Mar. 17th.  Due to processing time, we cannot accept entries received after this time.
  • Include one or two photos of each piece (front/back, top/bottom), since we can't hold a piece for viewing.
  • Include your name, wood species, largest dimension, and a short (one or two sentence) description. 
  • Each person can submit up to two items per session.
  • Send a separate email for each piece submitted.  
  • Reduce your photo file size before sending – try to keep files to 1Mb or less.
  • Include your name in your photo file name.

Some photo tips:

  • Use a booth/backdrop if you have one, or use a solid color wall.
  • Find good lighting, preferably from one source. Don't rely on camera flash.
  • If it's a finished piece, we suggest your best "gallery" shot and another of the bottom or profile/detail not shown in the main shot.
  • If it's a work in progress, closeup shots of problem areas or specific challenges would be appropriate.  
  • Crop your photos fairly close to the object alone.
