A spring in his step

DennisWebDennis is standing at the lathe with several spring demonstrations and classes.  He was at the Kansas City Woodturners’ Club in February, demonstrating and teaching the upside-down salt shaker and the Roman Canteen.  In March, he demonstrated for the Pueblo Woodturning Club.  March 14th,  he spent a Saturday at the Good Earth Garden Center’s Homestead Fair with other members of the Pikes Peak Woodturners.

In April, he will teach the upside-down salt shaker for the Colorado Springs Woodcraft store (April 18th).  This popular project is a great way for novice turners to improve skills.  It is also a good introduction to spindle-wise turning for those woodturners who have only worked in the face grain direction making bowls.  The tools and techniques differ for the two orientations of the wood to the lathe.   The week of April 19-25th, he will visit two woodturning clubs on the Western Slope of Colorado.

In addition to his public appearances, Dennis also gives private lessons for skills like thread chasing, cutting twists, and hollowing vessels:  719-481-8754
