Club Meeting – March 2019 – Carbide Tools – Use and Techniques by Larry Maughn
March 21 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The March 2019 demo will be on the use and techniques of carbide tools by Larry Maughan.
Our demonstrator for March 2019 will be Larry Maughan on using carbide tipped turning tools – The Tools and Process.
The demonstration will focus on evaluating and using various carbide tipped turning tools from different manufactures used on wood and acrylics. In this demonstration you will see examples of creating basic shapes (beads, coves, hollowing, etc) along with the techniques used to minimize sanding. The method of using carbide tipped tools can be somewhat different and this presentation will give you insights into some of your difficulties. There will also be information supplied from manufactures along with free giveaways of tools and support products.
Our presenter, Larry Maughan, has been working with wood since a youngster. During the last several decades his focus has been on woodturning including pens, bowls, lidded boxes, spindles, goblets and platters. He began using carbide tipped tools from the Easy Wood Tools Company soon after the company began in 2008. He is a Certified Instructor and Product Demonstrator with EWT and has done turning demonstrations in many of the woodworking stores and clubs in the Dallas areas well as other states.
