July 25 -Make the Most of Your Burl - $10/person
Cutting into a burl is like cutting a gemstone. To make my vessel the best piece possible, I want to cut the burl so that the figure is placed to advantage on the form. This presentation explains what I have learned about the anatomy of a burl, and how to cut it to show its best figure on your turnings. I will make a natural edged burl bowl, showing how I orient the piece on the lathe to get a balanced edge, turning and sanding the unsupported edge, and reverse chucking of a piece with an uneven rim.

Start time is 7am Hawaii, 9am Alaska, 10am Pacific, 11am Mountain, 12noon Central, 1pm Eastern, 2pm E Canada, 6pm UK, and 7pm Western Europe.

Live Woodturning Demonstrations


Join me for a Live Interactive Woodturning Demonstration!


Only $10 US per person!


Watch me LIVE as I show you how to make a woodturning project.

I will be in my workshop in Erie Colorado, working with my tools and equipment.


You could win the piece that I make in the demonstration! There will be a raffle at the end.


You can view the demonstration on your computer, tablet, phone, or tv.

All you need is a screen, speaker, and internet connection.

If you have a camera and microphone, we can see and hear you, but it isn't necessary.


Connect to me using Zoom software. Once you pay for the session, you will be emailed a link to register with Zoom. You need to follow that link and register before the day of the demonstration. Zoom will then send you an email with the joining information.


Click HERE for a tutorial on using Zoom.


This is Live! You will see all of the steps to the project, and all of my mistakes and catches!


This is Interactive, too! You can ask questions during the demonstration,

at the break, and afterwards.

Turners of every skill level will learn tips and get inspiration.


Get a Virtual Tour of my workshop! I have a professional shop where I do woodworking, metalworking, and woodturning.


I have prepared notes and visuals for you to download for each topic.


The Zoom session will start 1/2 hour before the Demonstration start time.

That will give you time to connect, and we can chat with each other before start time.

I will guide you through the controls on Zoom to maximize your experience of the meeting.


The total time for the demonstration is usually 2-3 hours.


Our Moderator will be Cynthia Carden Gibson


Please be aware! Stuff happens sometimes. If anything goes wrong, such as internet or power failure, or if you are unable to attend, I will save a seat for you at a future Demonstration.
