Jason Clark - Algonquin, Illinois
Back To Main Demonstrators
I’ve been turning for nearly 15 years
and have been entirely self-taught. I was president of the
Arizona Woodturners Association from 2012-2014 and was the local liaison for the 2014 AAW symposium
in Phoenix. I have demonstrated at various clubs around the country and
multiple symposia including the AAW national symposiums in 2015 and
2017. I now live and turn near Chicago
Demo titles and descriptions
with Rotating Rings
I will demonstrate how to turn a small bowl with a wide flat ring
using basic turning techniques. A very thin parting tool will then be used to cut the rings in a
way that they are free to rotate but canot come apart.
A modified hollow form with a doughnut
shape. The piece will be hollowed in one piece on
the lathe using a different approach to hollowing due to the shape of the
torus. I will also show a custom jig that can be
used to vacuum chuck this unique shape with a hole in the center.
with a Twist
A lidded box turned
on a total of 4 axes to create a box with 3 faces each of which rotates 120 degrees along the
length of the box.
