Our November 12th members meeting’s demonstrator is Adam Luna, a Peruvian woodturner now living in the outskirts of the Evergreen State.
He is a previous President of the Southwest Washington Woodturners. Adam likes the traditional techniques of the craft, and his work is inspired by the work of Richard Raffan, Bill Jones, and Mauricio Kolenc (his mentor). He is a wood lover, in love with shapes and curves, and the beauty that can be brought out of the wood. He is an expert at making boxes and will be demonstrating threaded boxes for us, with emphasis on good technique, such as creating a good tenon with a good sitting shoulder and full diameter gripping which makes your work safer and cleaner, leading to that moment when despite the wood having its imperfections you manage to not only align the grain but to get nice looking threads. (See page 6 for photos of his work).
At the business part of the November 12th meeting, we will be voting on the slate of officers for 2021 before the presentation. Please log into the meeting on time and cast your vote! Contact a board member if you have questions or need help connecting via Zoom.
