A Handout is available here.

An interesting multi-axis project.  In short:

  1. Turn a “Ball on a Stick”
  2. Cut it in half and mount the Half-Ball in the Chuck
  3. Hollow the Half-Ball to make the scoop bowl
  4. Whittle, sand and finish with walnut oil and beeswax.

September 2017 – A Visit to an Artists Studio – Chris Weiland

Chris and Suzi Weiland welcomed us to their home including Suzi’s “Hut” (a lovely planting shed) and Chris’s studio.  Chris discussed a wood salvage project he’s developed with Yellow Creek State Park.  The results include a variety of beautiful rustic planters located throughout the property.

Chris was able to ‘borrow” Suzi’s Hut to set up a lathe that he built to enable him to make large turnings.  The lathe is powered by an electric motor through a small (four-speed plus reverse) automobile transmission and a belt link to the headstock.

After seeing the lathe in action, we moved to Chris’s studio where we learned a bit about his design process and were able to see many of his items of work in stages running the gamut from initial concept to final product.  This was a most enjoyable evening!
