Olympic Peninsula Woodturners

The Olympic Peninsula Woodturners are a chapter of the American Association of Woodturners serving the Kitsap and Olympic Peninsula of Washington. We have a membership of 100 enthusiastic woodturners and monthly meetings where we exchange ideas, share projects, and learn from local, national, and international demonstrators.



STEPHEN HATCHER IS COMING TO BREMERTON!

Popular northwest woodturning artist

is the feature of the January 28 meeting

Stephen Hatcher    Stephen Hatcher is a widely exhibited artist and popular instructor. A lot of his work focuses on mineral inlay in big leaf maple, and you can see much of it on his website.
    He holds degrees from the University of Washington in Electrical Engineering and Mathematics. After retiring from the wireless communications industry, he developed hobbies of woodturning and stone carving. It all came together as art.
    The fact that he is a well-qualified and organized demonstrator is evident from his Techniques page. His instructions are logical and easy to understand, and could give you some insight into the evening.  
    His presentation is the highlight of the meeting.  Before the meeting is milling-around time; a time for buying glue and sandpaper, seeing what everyone else has been up to at the show-and-tell table, previewing the wood auction, and generally enjoying the light refreshments and high quality small talk.
