Next General Meeting:
November 8th, 2018
Our guest turner is John Williams from the Kingston Woodturners.
He will talk about production turning and will demonstrate ornamental birdhouses
John is a retired teacher of Design and Technology. He does woodturning between other activities which include dancing, table tennis, pickleball, windsurfing, snowboarding, skateboarding, canoeing, gardening and biking and more recently, dog walking. He has built his own lathes, windsurfers, snowboards, skateboards, canoes and bikes to pursue these activities.
The wood lathe has always intrigued him and he delights in finding beauty in gnarly wood or enhancing plain wood with his own decorations.
He belongs to the Kingston Woodturners (past president), and has been turning wood for around 30 years.
Designing and making creative jigs and fixtures has grown out of his career as a Design and Technology teacher.
John lives in Kingston, Ontario, Canada,
He may be contacted at: email@example.com
