Examples of our Members’ Work

Claude Lethiecq – Tour de Force Woodturning

Tour de Force woodturning was a art form practiced by European nobility until the 17th century. It encompasses complex geometric forms made on a lathe from a single piece of wood, including Chinese balls, interlocked spheres, polyhedrons and other complex geometric forms. Nothing is sculpted or glued except an occasional finial.

He wanted to share his work and techniques. He wrote a downloadable book with plans, jigs and techniques and specific project plans are freely available on the Tour de Force website.
