Tape #26

1998 AAW National Symposium: Techniques

Run Time: approx. 1 hour 30 minutes

This tape has a taste of some of the techniques from several well-known turners that were demonstrated at the 1998 AAW National Symposium. There is about 20 minutes each from Trent Bosch, Ron Fleming, and Richard Raffin. And 10 minutes each from Sigi Angerer, and J. Paul Fennel.

Trent Bosch starts with a demo on turning his "vessel within a vessel". He shows how to turn the vessel, and how to turn the insert that is inserted into the vessel. Also he shows his boiling and bending technique as well.

Next is Sigi Anderer. He demonstrates a technique called angular spinning (turning on a drum). This is a process of turning several spindles all at once, and all the same.

Third up is Ron Fleming. He shows how he creates intricate carvings on his turnings. He shows and demos the tools he uses.

After Ron is J. Paul Fennel. He shows some good ideas for making your own tools for turning. He also shows how he uses fiber optics for hollowing.

Finally Richard Raffin demonstrates turning lidded boxes. He shows his technique for getting the perfect fitting lid.

There are also little peeks at the symposium through-out this tape as well. I like this tape because it has several well known turners all on one tape.
