Here I am during the filming of the Broad and High show.
Thanks to my wife, Fawn, and louise for helping clean up the shop today. Getting closer to filming day on Thursday. I am looking forward to showing the crew how to turn a lidded box.
On Thursday May 1 the crew from WOSU’s Broad and High (http://wosu.org/2012/broadandhigh/) will be coming over to my shop to film me and my turning. I’ll be getting ready over this weekend for the big event.
I had the good fortune to attend the 2013 AAW symposium in Tampa Florida from June 27 – 30. During this time I participated in a roundtable discussion on turning with challenges with another turner who is blind along with two turners in wheelchairs. I attended many great demonstrations. On Sunday I turned a lidded box in the Robust lathe booth. They have a very nice lathe.
On Friday I purchased a bowl gouge from Thompson Lathe tools. I requested a bowl gouge with an Irish grind. Jimmy Clewes was in the booth and was able to sharpen the new gouge for me.
