greater vancouver woodturners guildOur friends in the AAW chapter North of the border have a great newsletter. The Greater Vancouver Woodturning Guild (GVWG) June newsletter has several interesting items in it:

  • Listing of upcoming demonstrators including bios of Art Liestman and Avelino Samuel
  • Story of a near fatal lathe accident involving a B.C. turner leading to a simple lathe modification to prevent a similar incident in the future
  • Tech talk with tips on expansion chucks, bowl finishing and power vs. manual sanding
  • A tutorial on end grain hollow forms
  • A nice write up on skews – types, bevels, sharpening, use
  • A Woodturning 101 article on turning a candle holder
  • Lots of pictures of items turned by members

As of this writing the June newsletter was linked to the Latest Newsletter link.

Take a look, I think you will enjoy reading their newsletter and will probably come away with a few new ideas.
