June Meetings Recap:

These meetings were co-hosted by
West Bay Woodturners & Silicon Valley Woodturners
and held virtually via Zoom

Program - Monday June 8
Jon Sauer - Ornamental turning & shop tour

This demonstrated the advantage of a virtual meeting. We could not have fit all of us into Jon's shop for a demo. But there we were, looking at his beautiful machines and watching him turn sample roses.
Jon started with a slide show with images of award winning pieces and photos of his machinery. Shortly we were acutually in his shop. He explained the way each machine operates to create the ornamental imagery. These machines are complicated and being there (virtually) with Jon pointing to the parts and showing us how they move made it almost understandable. Thank you, Jon. Many of us are grateful that you finally explained 'what is ornamental turning?' and 'how does a rose engine work?'.
