November Meeting this Wednesday

Now, this is what you call a Segmented, Turned Bowl


I was curious since I'm primarily what I think is referred to as a "flat woodworker" so found a website from our featured presenter this month to see what segmented turning is all about.  His name is Nelson Cassinger and he is an expert woodturner that has specialized in segmented turnings such as the bowl pictured above.  He is also well known for making beautiful, segmented bangles.

Nelson is a renowned wood turner and has presented his work at the Utah Turners Symposium  as well as sharing his skills at Craft Supply; a well known woodturners supply store in Utah.  He will explain his segmented technique to us as well as give a demonstration to show how to go about making a segmented turning.  Whether you're a turner or not, this promises to be a very interesting meeting.

As usual, we'll begin at 7:00 pm at WooditIs Studio located at 2267 West Gowan, Unit 106, North Las Vegas.  In addition to the presentation by Nelson we will have our customary meeting with business, reminders about the upcoming Chopped Challenge, and a show and tell of your latest work or woodworking adventure.  Just a reminder to limit the show and tell to around 5 minutes or less so we can have ample time for our featured presentation.

The public is invited, bring something to sit on as you know seating can be limited.  Any questions you can call Jamie at 702-631-1870.

See you there -- John
