Jim Miller and Easy Wood Tools.

Are carbide tools your Go-To gouges?  Or, are you wondering if they have a place in your tool rack?  Not everyone has the time or inclination to spend hours at the lathe learning how to use the more traditional Woodturning tools, so carbide tools have grown in popularity.  And one of the most popular brands is Easy Wood Tools.  Our demo this month will be Jim Miller.   Jim is a factory rep and will be discussing and demonstrating all aspects of using Easy Wood carbide tools.

Jim says,
I have been turning for 40+ years. And still learning!! I am amazed at the creative things done in woodturning today!  I first learned a love of woodturning from my uncle. He turned many things as gifts and I learned much from his creativity. I have been able to take classes with some of the best woodturners around. My first exposure to the wider world of woodturning was at the 1985 Woodturning Conference at Arrowmont.  One of the things that I was interested in as far back as the late ‘80’s, was turning pens. My interest grew after meeting Dale Nish and then starting to order supplies from Craft Supplies, USA. I have turned a lot of pens and other small items over the years and have now started to make kitless or bespoke pens, using blanks that I have cast.

As always it is best to experience the demonstration and gallery live in the studio, but if you can’t make it will be on Zoom.
