      We had several guests, potential members, some outstanding Show and Tell displays.

      Our Demonstrator was Charles Jennings From the Tri-State Woodturners in Chattanooga.

      Charles gave us a story of Wood Turning from an engineers perspective: “How did the Turner do that, Why did the turner do that, And how can I do that better, faster, or cheaper?”

      His slow turned poly finish gives an outstanding finish with 1 coat. The slow drying process is made up for by the quality of the finish.  Another great idea was the use of wood and pvc “Pen Mandrels” for turning all parts of a pepper and salt mill simultaneously.
