November Woodturners Group Meeting

Our next meeting is 9:00AM Saturday, November 8th at the home of Gary Mrozek, 1314 West Oakes Drive, St. Cloud. For more information contact Gary at 252-2764 or email There will be limited seating. Bring your own chair if possible.

Back in April, we demonstrated the Spindle Roughing Gauge. Our intent is to highlight different tools throughout the year. We would like to continue this month with the Skew Chisel. Discussion will include its basic uses and sharpening tips. You’ll have an opportunity to make some shavings. With hands-on activities we’ll learn techniques from each other on a full size and a mini lathe. Bring your own Skew Chisel if you like. We’re particularly looking for an Alan Lacer type radius grind if you have one. Don’t forget to bring show & tell item/s. We’ll also try a third time to have a demonstration by Dick Beumer on lidded boxes.

Our November challenge project is a utility item (salt & pepper shakers, rolling pin, spoons, et.). If you don’t have an item to bring, tell us about the item you attempted!
