Past Club Meeting:

September 2019 - Small work by Harvey Klein

Harvey

Harvey Klein, master of miniatures.
Harvey displayed a large number of small pieces which he created. He talked about and radiated the fun and satisfaction of doing small work. He showed tools he had made suitable for small turning. It seemed that repurposed Allen wrenches were his favorite.
He turned a small vase, hollowed and finished in short order. A small project, finished quickly and well done.
