Gold Country Wood Turners
Who We Are
Welcome to Gold Country Woodturners
We are a group of woodturners who live in the northern Sierra Nevada foothills concentrated around Grass Valley and Nevada City, California. We share our work, methods, new ideas, and demonstrate tools and techniques with each other and in our community. Between meetings we are available to help each other, gather wood, and search out learning and teaching opportunities. We are an active chapter of the American Association of Woodturners with approximately 75 members.
Recap of August meeting
Ring Holder - Tony White
Tony provided a clear description of the process to turn a ring holder. He said these are welcome gifts especially for women as they like to take the rings off before putting their hands in dishwater. These ring holders are a great project for beginning turners requiring the use of only a spindle roughing gouge, scraper and parting tool. The spindle to hold the ring is 1/2 inch and Tony used a sharpened 1/2 inch open end wrench to size the spindle. While Tony used a separate blackened insert, use your imagination and turn one out of a single piece of wood, a figured scrap would make a good looking holder.
