    NWWT MONTHLY MEETING

    Tom Willing - Easter Eggs

    Our very own Tom Willing will take the mystery out of turning one of the most elemental forms in nature, the egg.  Elemental it may be, but it is a challenge to any turner as the shape is an ever changing surface from end to end. Tom, however, has a process that will give you two methodical approaches to turning this shape.   

    Documents - Egg Forms, Turning Egg Forms


    Show & Tell - Bring your items for show and tell! 

    Monthly Challenge = Pyrography

    Monthly Wood Raffle - $1/ticket, 6 tickets for $5
