Internationally famed production woodturner Mike Mahoney will appear in this video demonstration from his home in Mount Aukum, California. Mike has been a professional turner since 1994 and teaches and demonstrates internationally. He turns woods exclusively from local tree trimmers and cities near his farm.
From his artist's statement: "I am passionate about my craft and the American Craft movement. I am dedicated to producing quality craft and educating the public about woodturning. I produce all my work on the lathe without any emblellishments after the fact, creating a very traditional feel with contemporary ideas. I want my work to be attractive as well as useful. For my work to be admired is one thing, but for my work to be used fulfills my purpose as a craftsman."
In addition, the meeting will feature announcements, Show and Tell and the wood auction. Members will also have access to our library and to sandpaper and CA glue sales.
Gathering starts at 6 p.m. Announcements begin at 6:30.
