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.
We meet on the first Tuesday of every month from 6:15 to 9:00 PM in the basement of Rockler Woodworking and Hardware.
Visitors and new members are always welcome.
Tuesday, March 5th
Our demonstrator for February is is professional woodturner Alan Lacer who will demo how to use and make a Hook Tool.
In this demo Alan will explain the hook tool as a solution to the problem of cleanly working end-grain hollowing. Following a short demonstration of cutting with a hook tool, Alan will make a simple but very functional hook tool. He will also demonstrate several versions of a hook tool such as a ring tool.
Many thanks to the February Clean Up Crew: Sonny Jones (for his own demo!), Henry Williams, and Gene Wentworth.
The February Clean Up Crew is: Don Prorak Bruce Perry Danny King.
