May: Woodturning for Furniture Makers

  • 16 May 2017
  • 7:00 PM
  • Multnomah Arts Center

Mike Meredith is well known in the Turning community.  He's been president of Northwest Woodturners (NWWT) and is founder of Doctor's Workshop http://www.doctorswoodshop.com making a family of finishes for turned items.  

Mike will be doing a turning demo geared for furniture makers.   In 1998, he got tired of buying turned legs for the tables he was making and thought he could turn them himself.  The rest is history as he demos wood turning around the country.

Mike's demo will include:

  • Explaining and demoing sharpening
  • Explain the difference in the tool steels available today
  • Spindle turning demo
  • Finishing

We will also use a two camera setup to video the demo.
