February 2005 - Dave Lancaster

During our January and February meetings this year we were blessed by back to back demos by chapter founder and past president David Lancaster on his specialty - Twice Turned Bowls. In January he demo’d blank preparation; faceplate mounting; rough turning the outside of a gorgeous 24” cherry bowl blank; and finished up with a session on coring techniques.

Between meetings the bowl was dried in his kiln and then in February he demonstrated the finish turning process using a vacuum chuck; adding detail; sanding techniques; and concluded with a talk about how he applies a food safe finish on his work.
