Day 67: Buckeye
Saturday was the Buckeye Heritage Days event in "historic downtown Buckeye" and I was on site from 8:30AM- 4:30PM. My on stage demo went very well, I did the turning while our club president did the talking. I ended up with a very decent rough turned bowl in just 20 minutes.
Here I'm helping a young man turn a pen for the first time. He'd never touched a lathe before and was thrilled to be able to make something like that with just a little bit of hands on teaching and some close supervision.
Club member Dale Gillaspy helps out another new turner.
Mike Abels, another club member on hand for the event assists a first time turner.
A table showcasing some of our wares, examples of some of our work, and business cards and flyers. I sold 2 small pieces, one was a bowl to the guy coordinating the vendors and a hot dog to a woman in the AZ Game & Fish booth next to ours. Not a bad day.
