Weidman Class

My woodturning club GAW/Atlanta had a wonderful demonstrator month. I was happy to make it into his class on multi axis turning. I made a little face that has been riding around in my car with me since the class. This is it how the process starts.

Derek Weidman makes amazing work.  The lion, pictured below, he brought with him to Atlanta was out of this world. I love his disregard for established turning techniques and I am amazed at what he has come up with. Every demo is great fun since he takes audience suggestions for the piece he will make on the spot.
