On July 8, 2023, our demonstration will be Chris Stinson. He will be demonstrating a simple box. Chris is a member of our club and has been turning for some time now.

On September 9, 2023, our demonstration will be Anne Ogg. President of the Carolina Mountain Woodturners. She is an Artisan with the International Guild of Miniature Artisans specializing in 18th and 19th century miniature reproductions. She loves to demo turning miniatures. She will discuss some tools she’s made to accomplish such tiny renderings. Attached is a lidded dish she will demo. It is sitting next to a dime. The dish is patterned after a full size antique in the Winterthur Museum in Delaware. 

On October 14, our club will host Mike Moore. He has been doing woodworking and woodturning as a “serious hobbyist” for 30+ years while he worked as an engineer in the materials and precision machining fields. He decided to apply his attention to detail from a career in corporate America to his passion for woodturning. More about Mike can be found at https://www.mmoorewoodturning.com/

On November 11, our club will host June Siple. June enjoys turning but enjoys embellishment of turned objects more. She will demonstrate her carving and coloring techniques for the club. She writes: “I started turning at the Sawtooth (an arts school in WS) in 2018 after I retired as an STEM educator. I stopped in 2019 to take an instructor position teaching English for Academic Purpose at Alamance Community College. In 2021, I took up turning again, taking lessons at ACC. So I’m still a beginner/intermediate. However, what I discovered was that I like embellishing my turning with carving and metal leaf. I think this comes from my history of jewelry making, which I have been doing for the past 10-12 years. For me, turning an object is just the beginning of the creative process.”
