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.



GLENN SCHAFFER RETURNS FOR FEBRUARY APPEARANCE

Natural edged vessels from green wood highlight the February 25 meeting. 

Natural edged goblet   Glenn's first demonstration to our woodturning club was on textured rims last May, and was a big success. He is back this month, and the focus of the evening's presentation will be turning natural edge vases from green wood. 
    He is a relatively new turner, having only about seven year's turning experience, but has an artistic eye and a very good understanding of the woodturning process. His explanations are clear and concise, and you can get a preview of his work from his web site or his You Tube channel.
    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.

"There is nothing more powerful than being inspired by an idea and having the confidence to create that one-of-a-kind piece on the lathe. This is what woodturning is all about!" Eric Lofstrom
