IRD - John's demo will be on bangles. This is a good beginner demo but a lot of fun for turners of all levels. Bangles make great gifts for wives, daughters and friends, or for the women in the audience - yourself. They are also great items to add to your craft show booth. Anyone with a basic turning set can make a bangle. In this demo John will demonstrate various ways to mount and turn wood bangles. John will show you specialized tools you can buy to make the process easier, but he will also show you how to use tools you already have to accomplish the same thing. It's amazing how something as simple as a rubber band can make a big difference in the way you use a basic tool. There are many ways to turn bangles and you will see lots of options so you can find the technique that's best for you. John will also cover bangle sizes and talk about different styles so you can create your own unique bangles.
