Kaatskill Woodturners Meeting August 13

Kaatskill Woodturners meeting Wednesday August 13, 2014 at 7:00 PM at the Opdahl Building

Karen Aune will discuss “Turning Bangle Bracelets With Woodburning Accents.” Topics will include materials and bangle turning steps using the lathe. As a newcomer to woodburning Karen will briefly mention hand position, curved motion, nib choice, and factors that affect woodburning marks. More specific attention will be given to woodburning the Celtic Knot Design. Samples of her work will be provided as well as information regarding the woodburning system tools, and reference material.

This is a great chance to learn a new technique and a different product for lathe output. Be sure to come and give Karen the support she richly deserves.
