September Meeting: Turning a Box - Tom Willing

  • 06 Sep 2018
  • 6:30 PM - 9:00 PM
  • Multnomah Arts Center

Tom Willing's well-received demo on turning spheres in June led us to invite him back to demonstrate his approach to turning a box at our September meeting. We are happy to say he has agreed to do so. From tool techniques (using a skew, back-hollowing, slip-fitting parts) to aesthetics (elements and principles of design), making boxes on a lathe integrates more skills into one project than anything other you can imagine, and while the project may seem a little daunting at first, Tom says the effort to learn how is well worth the satisfying results you can achieve. Tom is quick to credit the work and practice of such turners as Richard Raffan, Ray Key, and the Battys as inspirations for his extended exploration of box turning. Tom's demo at the September meeting will be a preview into the hands-on workshop he will teach for the club on September 22nd.
