June, 2015 Meeting
Our demonstrator for the June, 2015 meeting was member Ken Ness. Ken demonstrated the
art of turning pewter. He melts the pewter, pours it into molds, and when cool, turns it with
regular wood turning tools. Ken demonstrated turning a foot for a bowl, and a finial. Ken
suggested that a good source for the pewter metal ingots is "Rotometals.com" out of San
Leandro, CA. A video of Ken's demo will be uploaded to youtube and a link to the video will
be added to this web page.
Bob Maxwell won the Show and Tell Novice award, and Mick Hutchinson won the Advanced
turner award. Congratulations to both!
Our July meeting will be an all day meeting with guest turner Delbert Dowdy providing a
demonstration of various segmented turning techniques.
