We are the Denver area chapter of the AAW (American Association of Woodturners) serving Woodturners throughout Colorado's Front Range.
We help Woodturners gain experience by providing monthly demonstrations with Professional Turners, a library, mentoring, a Ladies group (Ladies of the Lathe) and Youth mentoring, etc.
Everyone is welcome to join us at one of our monthy meetings to see what we are all about.
We meet on the first Tuesday of every month from 6:15 to 9:00 PM in the basement of Rockler Woodworking and Hardware.
Visitors and new members are always welcome.
Tuesday, November 6th
Our demonstrator for November is FRW member Ed Cypher who will talk about casting. Ed won a 2017 PHEOG grant to attend a class at Arrowmont School. His class was “Pens and Beyond workshop” with instructors Don Ward and Curtis O. Seebeck, who are probably the foremost pen turner and stabilizer/casters in the country.
The demo will be centered around what I learned at Arrowmont. Dealing with "best" practices for casting, pen turning, and jigs to make segmenting a little easier. Also CA finishes on the lathe for pens and other spindle items. Just a potpourri of ideas. Will not include much turning at all and no actual casting as polyester resin fumes are very irritating to many. So more of a show and tell.
Many thanks to the October Clean Up Crew: Don Prorak, Gary Cantrell, Keith Motzner.
