Greg Gallegos will be our demonstrator for this month. This will be a remote demonstration coming from Greg’s shop in Haslet, Michigan.  Greg is a professional turner who has turned most everything from hollow forms, natural edge bowls, functional tableware bowls in production runs, whimsical pieces, to decorative carving.


Greg says he has “spent my entire life expressing my creativity through drawing and woodworking.”In this demonstration Greg will go over the basics of turning Podlets from green wood to completion from start to finish.

He’ll discuss;

      Wood selection

      Grain alignment

      Proper tool approach

      Microwave drying


This will include how he approaches each Podlet from picking the wood, getting the maximum amount of movement out of your green wood. He’ll also talk about turning green wood and how we can take a different look at turning through this lens to create unique and one of a kind pieces.

In addition, if time allows he will also discuss his ‘faulted wood technique.
