Nor-Cal Monthly Meeting - Jim Echter Demo

  • September 26, 2023
  • 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM
  • Veterans Hall, 1300 Forrest St., Folsom, CA 95630 or Zoom Meeting


Each month on the 4th Tuesday at 6:30 pm we have a monthly meeting (except November and December).  We have a demonstration on woodturning and "show and tell" where members share what they have been working on. There is also plenty of good company.

This month we will be joined via Zoom by Jim Echter who will share his demo on ""Spindling” Your Way to Better Bowls".  Jim says "For hundreds of years, woodturning apprenticeships taught spindle turning before face grain turning. The reason is the turner developed much better tool control and a feel for how wood likes to be cut. These skills can easily be transferred to bowl turning, taking your projects to the next level. This program will walk you through the basics on how to teach yourself spindle turning and how to apply those skills to enhance your bowls. The tools and their proper use will all be demonstrated."

No need to sign up, just join us in person or via Zoom.  We will send out the Zoom link to all of our active members before the meeting date. If you have any questions email Chris Smith at or call 916-712-6979.
