Roger Arnold mesquite and maple sant and pepper grinders Roger Arnold big leaf maple bowl Uel Clanton amomatic cedar John Stegal three cornered piece

Roger Arnold showed a salt and pepper grinder set he got out of a British publication, Woodturning magazine. There are lots of projects and the magazine is available on line. Roger also brought a very nice box of big leaf maple. Uel Clanton brought a weed pot from a fence post of aromatic cedar. It had loads of character since, in its previous life it weathered down to mostly heartwood. John Stegal brought a practice piece from a video by Frank Bowers of Atlanta’s Guinnett Woodworkers Woodturners group. A three sided bowl, it started as a cube and was turned from opposite corners.

 Trenton Green, fish knocker of basswood George Taylor pecan and mesquite bowls George Taylor bubinga rolling pen and mesquite bowl James Johnson reworked memosa hollow form

New woodturner, Trenton Green, brought his first piece, a fish knocker of basswood which was mostly a cove and bead exercise with the skew. George Taylor showed four pieces. The first picture is of a pecan and a mesquite bowl. The second is a French rolling pin of bubinga and a mesquite bowl. Our last piece is the return of an old friend, James Johnson’s big and tall vase of mimosa. When we first saw it, it had a red dye base with white liming was rubbed into the surface highlighting the summer growth rings. Unfortunately, the sun got to it turning the liming wax yucky. James sanded over the surface and brought it back with a L.A. Cude finish. I didn’t catch the final plans, but I hope it is being brought back to even greater glory.
