Gold Country Wood Turners
Tool Handles by Ed Larson
Ed will start out by turning an awl. This simple project demonstrates all the steps required to make a tool handle. Next he will discuss ferrules and make a ferrule from a copper pipe coupler. He will then drill a blank, and fit the ferrule for a 1/2 inch gouge. Last a 3/8 inch Hosaluk handle insert will be fitted to a blank. The Hosaluk handle insert allows for interchangeable gouges to be attached to a single handle.
Monthly meetings include a display of members turned items and a raffle. Guest and members of the public are always welcome.
A reminder: The Elks Club serves a single entree meal for under $12 starting at 5:00. They also have a full service bar.
