Monthly Meeting Demonstrations













Enjoy an evening with Dennis Belcher

“Wood Cracks Me Up”

Please join us as Dennis demonstrates options on what to do when your bowl or other turned piece CRACKS!  OUCH!!!  We all have either experienced or will experience this type of designing opportunity. Dennis will explain and demonstrate how to work with and fix a crack, split or bark incursion in a piece being turned.


Dennis is requesting that members bring in a piece of your own work that is affected by a crack, split or bark incursion which will give him the opportunity to teach and demonstrate on our personal pieces.  Please look through your inventory, perhaps even in your wood burning pile to find a piece that needs a new life and bring with you.


There will be ample time for questions and answers.



Southern Piedmont Woodturners begin to gather at 5:30 pm at the studio at the corner of Kerr and Crowell, Concord, NC.  The actual evening is about 2 hours, including a brief announcement period, raffle, review of member turned pieces and snacks, winding up about 9:00 pm.  Visitors are always welcome!



2019 Promises to be a great year. We have some exciting events and activities coming our way throughout the year.  Consider bringing someone with you.  If you are receiving my email and have not attended a meeting in a while, please consider joining us.  We miss you and would love to have you join us.
