May Woodturners Group Meeting Recap

The Woodturners Group met at Dick Beumer’s shop on Saturday, May10th. Dick demonstrated his Oneway 1640 lathe with the Oneway Easy Core attachment. The Easy Core System allows you to remove multiple nested bowl blanks from one piece of wood. With a 14” piece of black walnut he was able to make three individual bowls. Where conventional hollowing would have produced a mountain of shavings, Dick had but a few handfuls of waste.
