Invitation from Cape Cod Woodturners


Date: 02/03/2021
Time: 12:00 am


On behalf of Cape Cod Woodturners, I would like to invite your club members and guests to participate in an interactive remote demonstration by Rudy Lopez on Wednesday, February 3 at 6:30 pm.  Rudy will beturning a natural edge end grain vase from a green log using a bowl gouge and the Rolly Munro Hollower. He will explain limb selection, pith orientation and drying to help avoid cracking. He will cover the differences of cutting end-grain verses side-grain and using different end-grain hollowing methods. He will use the Rolly Munro Hollowing tool and discuss it verses the bowl gouge, scrapers or a hook tool along with the use and sharpening of the negative rake scraper. Rudy will demonstrate how light can be used to gauge thickness, reverse jamb chucking to undercut and hollow the foot, and sanding wet wood on and off of the lathe.
The cost of the demonstration is $10 per person and you can register and see more information on this demonstration on Rudy’s website at rudolphlopez.com.  Click on Shop Now, then click on Club Bookings, go to February 2021, then February 3, 2021 and you will be able to register.  You pay online and you will get an individual Zoom link from Rudy for the demonstration plus a reminder notice the day before.
Feel free to email me with any questions or concerns.  Hope you can join us on February 3 for this great demonstration by an internationally known turner!
Best wishes,
