Do you have a burl, and you're not sure where to start? As I create the Wildfire Challis in this presentation, I show you how I cut a burl to make this natural edged Goblet Form.

Learn my methods for mounting the burl blank on the lathe to achieve a balanced rim, turning the form, sanding the unsupported natural edge, and reverse chucking a piece with an uneven rim.

My coloring technique is exciting! Watch as I use transparent dyes to enhance and add dimension to the burl figure.

To complete the Wildfire Challis, it’s fitted with a stem made from a separate piece of wood.

Run time is about 2 hours, plus time for questions.

This presentation is different from my usual ones. It is put on and run by AAW, so they are in charge of registration. The Webinar format is different, also. We communicate via Chat, We don't have open mics for socializing.
I am here for you, before, during, and after, to answer your questions and talk about woodturning! Email me any time! Send me pictures of your work!

Live Woodturning Demonstrations


Join me for a Live Interactive Woodturning Demonstration!


Only $15 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.


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.

View a recording of the Demonstration for 30 days following


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.

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


It's 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 3-5 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 or give you a refund.
