Demonstrations are at the heart of the Pikes Peakmeetings. The following are the upcoming demos as we currently know them. Demonstrations listed here are tentative and subject to change. Please see the club newsletter prior to the next meeting for confirmation of the demonstration.
The March demonstration date changed to March 8.
March 8, our demonstrator will be Alan Lacer. He will demo on the Skew chisel. Note that there is a $5 fee for non-members for this demonstration.
Alan has been involved in woodturning for over forty years as a turner, teacher, writer, exhibition coordinator, demonstrator and expert witness. He has been an instructor and demonstrator, working in all fifty states and six foreign countries. His published writings, upwards of 150 articles and books, cover a wide spectrum of woodturning from historical and cultural, technical and specific projects. His specialties include the skew chisel, sharpening techniques, finishing, lidded boxes and making and using hook tools. In 1999 he was awarded the Honorary Member Award for that year from the American Association of Woodturners for his contributions to the field.
In this demonstration you will have a chance to watch Alan go through a number of different cuts. The presentation will also cover the critical aspects of getting an excellent edge on the tool—and even how it relates to sharpening other woodturning tools.
