Dale's bowls are sold throughout the world. His expertise as a production turner is well known and he has given many demos and teaches woodturning around the world. This video will demonstrate how he makes his oval bowls. It is not a trivial process and requires a special jig. For the curious, this will be a very informative video.
Adding color can turn a mundane turning into a spectacular turning. This demonstration will show the use of dyes to color wood. It is most dramatic with figured wood as it will really make the figure "pop"
The Multnomah Art Center will still be closed so this will be another on-line meeting using Zoom. Meeting information will be sent to all members a few days before the meeting.

The Open Shop is directed toward the new turner but all are welcome. Bring a project you want help finishing. Bring questions about methods. There will be six lathes available to use. Bring your own tools and wood or buy wood there.
We will have two sharpening stations to help you get that sharpening method right. Bring your tools, bring your questions. There is no more important topic for the new turner (or the old ones for that matter) than sharpening.
At our board meeting last week, the board agreed to hold our annual BBQ and picnic. Many thanks to David and Karen Williams who have agreed to once again, host the event.
What is It
This is our annual fund and fun raiser. It is a critical event in keeping NWWT in good financial shape and provides fantastic bargains for our members. Also, it has been some time since we have seen each other face to face so a great opportunity to renew friendships. If you are new to turning and looking for tools or wood to turn, this is your chance to pick up a year’s worth of wood for pennies on the dollar.
How Can You Help
We have generous donations from Rockler and other vendors that we will be contacting but the majority of items are from other members. Below are items that have been popular in the past.
If you are new to the club or have never been to our auction, we start with a great BBQ at around noon. We always appreciate for members to bring a dish to share – fruit, dessert, and side dishes. We will take care of the meat. You will have plenty of time to browse the donations and pick out your target items.
11:00 – Arrival time if you can help set-up or have donations to unload
12:00 – BBQ Open
1:00 - Auction
At around 1:00, after everyone if full, rather than taking a nap we start our auction and again we will have the professional auctioneer as we have had in the past which keeps the show lively and fun.
We hope to see you there!
Note, in the past we have had members who could not make the auction but would like to make a contribution to the club. If you are one of them, you can easily donate online at https://northwestwoodturners.wildapricot.org/Donate . NWWT is a 501-c3 non-profit organization and all donations are tax deductible.
