Ken’s turning was started at the Bien Pho hands on last year. It led to a discussion by the group of what a fine turner, teacher and gentleman Bien was. The woodturning world has lost a great ambassador with his passing.
Kelly Dunn had a fantastic demo on hollow turning. Most inspiring were shop made tools. Thank you Kelly for your inspirational edification.
