Club Meeting – April 2019 – Pencil Box by Neil Brand
April 18, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The April 2019 demonstration will be Neil Brand demonstrating how to make a pencil box.
I’ve been a member of Golden Triangle Woodturners for about 15 years and a member of Woodturners of North Texas and the AAW for almost as long. I enjoy turning all sorts of things, but a box is one of my favorites. In the August issue of the American Woodturner, Beth Ireland wrote a nice description of how to make a pencil box, a box that looks like a pencil. Her techniques requires little more than the standard tools that essentially all woodturners own. My plan is to demonstrate various ways to make a pencil box, including Beth’s techniques as well as a few other ideas. In the process, I will talk about how a few additional tools can be helpful, although not necessary to make a pencil box. Some of the additional tools are common woodworking tools such as the table saw and a rotary tool, but one is not so common. I’ll show how access to a 3D printer can be very helpful in making jigs and parts of the final product.
