December 6, 2020

It has been a busy few days for some club members. Three people have sent in samples of their recent work.
– Paul Schroeder made some stocking stuffers.
– Al Jardine sent in some local festive decorations.
– Mike Hosaluk went wild doing production work.


At Christmas time, I usually find a reason to turn some stocking stuffers. This year I decided to turn wooden scoops. The process involves turning a goblet and then sanding a scoop form. On one goblet, I got carried away and turned two captive rings, so I decided to finish it as a goblet. The project is a great way to use some of the scrap wood I’ve found in the last year.

I recently had an order for some production items that I make from time to time. I found some unturned blanks and made this batch to send off.
