Turning Chess Set - with unique tools.,
Alan Dewey is originally from Hull, England, and currently from Asheville, N. C., has an interesting presentation in store for us. He is the world's premiere antiques chess set restorer, and works with an international clientele. He has been a turner since late childhood and has specialized in wood turning and antiques restoration of various kinds for the last quarter of a century. Alan was a master bricklayer ("brickie") and also studied art. He has extensive experience with European antiques of all sorts and is now learning about American antiques, particularly those from the Colonial period. Alan heads up the hugely-successful Learn to Turn classes at the CHESSSPY workshop.
