Turn a Platter demonstration by Michael Boyle Michael Boyle, the author of this brief bio, has been turning for an estimated 18-20 years.  Note, at my age, memory is one of the first three things to go.  I don’t remember what the other two are. I have been a member of the Dallas Area Woodturners (DAW) for at least 8 years and possibly more (memory once again).  I have taken a few classes with Jimmy Clewes, Alan Lacer, David Ellsworth, Rudy Lopez and other local turners over the years and learned valuable design, sharpening and tool handling techniques which I have found very helpful to my turning prowess.  I taught group turning classes at the Rockler Woodworking and Hardware for a few years in Richardson, TX.  I now I teach individual lessons on request at my home shop in Allen, TX, and scheduled group lessons at the Woodcraft store in Plano, TX.  My wife, Sue, and I both turn and currently have four lathes.  Our biggest is a Vicmarc VL240 with a bed extension, next in order of size is a Vicmarc VL150, a Jet 1221 EVS and a Jet 1015.  My wife and I both enjoy turning and sharing our turning abilities with others interested in improving their turning skills.

Club Meeting – February 2019 –Star Box by John Holderman

Star Box

The Demo for February 2019 will be John Holderman making a Star Box. I’ve been a wood turner since May of 2008 when my father and I took a class with John Horn at Woodcraft.  I joined DAW in 2009 and have been enjoying the great knowledge base and expertise of this club ever since.  I began turning Bois d ’arc since it was cheap (Free) and readily available.  That’s probably where I learned to sharpen my tools. A couple years ago I took a Jimmy Clewes class on turning an oriental winged box and wanted to use what I learned in my own way.  I remembered that a few years ago a friend asked me to make her a start for the top of her Christmas tree so I dug up that project, made some modifications and created my star box with a touch of Texas in it.  I’ll discuss the concepts of this fun project and a few variations as well as turn one to show you the unique process.
