About Front Range Woodturners

We are the Denver area chapter of the AAW (American Association of Woodturners) serving Woodturners throughout Colorado's Front Range.

We help Woodturners gain experience by providing monthly demonstrations with Professional Turners, a library, mentoring, a Ladies group (Ladies of the Lathe) and Youth mentoring, etc.

Everyone is welcome to join us at one of our monthy meetings to see what we are all about.

Demo Description:Interactive Saturn Bowl.

Description:

Interactive Saturn bowl. Attendees will see a short presentation of some of my work as well as a preview of the evening’s projects. I will demonstrate my process for turning a small bowl with a wide flat brim that rotates around the rim of the bowl. A jig will then be made to aide in one or more offset rings to be cut free so that they can rotate around the bowl.

Denver Hand's on Class: On Wednesday, May 2nd, Jason will be teaching a hands-on class at Rockler. There are still some openings left. The cost of the class is $125 - please contact Pat Scott for information.

Class Description: The all day class consists of two “projects”:

  • 1). Several multi axis spindles followed by a multi-axis lidded box with a twist.
  • 2). Ultra thin parting tool which will then be used to create a Saturn bowl.
