The Utah Woodturners held their annual symposia on May 12-14th. There was over 80 demonstrations to choose from, a swap meet, pen turners rendezvous, student learning area, a banquet (it was delicious), silent auction, live auction, and plenty of very friendly people. If you have never attended this one, you are really missing out.
Sara Robinson is a professor at Oregon State University, and gave a wonderful presentation on spalting. Here is a link to a past presentation she gave, which I found on her website.
This year’s demonstrators included: Michael Mocho, Carmen DeLaPaz, Lane Phillips, Linda Ferber, Mike Mahoney, Pat & Karen Miller, Vernon Liebrant, Rex Burningham, Kip Christensen, Kirk DeHeer, Kurt Hertzog, Mike Hosaluk, Jimmy Clewes, Ray Key, Mike Mahoney, and many more.
Mike Mahoney, Jimmy Clewes, and Mike Hosaluk send their greetings to everyone.
