Holiday party and gift exchange


A collection of gifts, a tree with ornaments, a table with food, a lifetime honorary member award to Peter Pipe and a group of hungry woodturners with spouses and friends is all it took to make a great holiday party.  

Appetizers were served at 6:30, dinner at 7 followed by the ornament raffle and gift exchange. The ornaments and gifts were of very high quality, evidence of much effort and skill on the part of the contributors.

Trent Bosch - Wood Sculptor/Turner
Saturday May 19 2018


Trent is a master of wood turning combined with the artistry of carving and decoration.
He turned a hollow form which he carved to look like a flower bud into which he inserted an internal piece using boiling water and balloon trickery. Hollowing was done using a camera and video monitor to locate the cutting edge inside the piece.
He turned a platter, the edge of which he carved using a variety of air driven cutting, grinding and sanding tools.
He turned a bowl, the side of which he decorated using another variety of tools.

Demonstration photos are here. There are a large number but they are in sequence of the demo.
