February Demonstrator

February’s Remote Demo: For our February Zoom meeting, we are again partnering with our friends in the Woodturners of Olympia (WOO) to present Harvey Meyer, who is a nationally recognized woodturner. Harvey is well known for his intricate “basketry illusion” enhancements on platters, bowls, and hollow forms. These designs are often inspired by the patterns on American Indian baskets.

During his 3-hour demonstration, Harvey will take us through the creation of the design, how to print out index wheels for various projects, wood turning, using a beading tool to create concentric rings on the project, wood burning the radials in the wood to create individual cells, and coloring those cells individually to create patterns in the “weaving”. If you would like to see some of Harvey’s work, please check his website at www.harveymeyer.com.

Due to Harvey’s schedule, length of this demo, and the time zone difference, this demonstration will be held on February 13th, which is the second Saturday of the month, from 3:00 – 6:00 PM. This is an unusual time for us, so please put it in your calendar to be sure you don’t miss it! As usual, you will be sent the Zoom invitation link on Monday February 8th, and there will be a reminder sent to all the active members on our list on Friday the 12th. Just use the Zoom link to join us any time after 2:30 PM.

Please join us. If you are not currently using Zoom to attend these events, you are missing something really good.
