An Intro to Turning with Louis Boucher

If you missed May's meeting, no worries, here's a reprieve.  Master turner Louis Boucher screened an hour long introduction to lathe work.  It was aimed at folks who are contemplating getting a lathe or those who have neglected lathes sitting in dusty corners of their shops.  In the video he covered topics like essential needs in specifications and accessories; explained how and when the different turning tools are used; and demonstrated in real time turning a mallet and bowl from scratch.  And then he donated the mallet and bowl for a draw to the club. 

Here is a shorter introduction -- only 12 minutes -- to woodturning by M. Boucher, given at Lee Valley three years earlier.  If he has whetted an appetite for learning more about turning, consult the list of Lee Valley presentations to see when he is speaking next.  Un gros merci to M. Boucher for his informative presentation, a highlight of this year's meetings!
