The focus of the session was on various ways to hold wood on a lathe and atendees included:Art Lash, Daniel Botelho, Janet Folger, Mike Grady, Mike Traynor, Peter Lofgren, Richard Wright, Robin McIntyre, Shelly Levin and Toby Lorenzen.
From Clarke: “I had all of the things that I use to hold and or drive stock with set out on one table, actually on the table saw. Several different types of blanks (for salad bowls, natural edge, vases, wands, Christmas trees, boxes etc.) on one workbench and I had stacks of turned and rough turned bowls of different shapes and sizes, some ornaments, baskets, molds and boxes on another workbench to use as examples when talking about how to hold them on the lathe.”
