 Mentors Available to Members

The following list of members have offered to act as mentors to any member of the club who wishes to have hands-on instruction.  This can be done at the mentor’s shop or at the member’s home on their own lathe.  It is an excellent way for beginning turners to quickly learn basic skills and safety and for more advanced turners to develop new ideas and skills.  Using your list of member phone numbers, give any mentor a phone call to arrange a time.  If you want to add your name to, or delete your name from the mentor list, contact Jim Rinde.

Each mentor can teach basic skills; some have also listed specific topics in which they are especially interested or have more advanced skills.

Bruce Berger Any topic including segmented turning
David Frank Any topic with emphasis on the basics for new turners
Al Geller Open form bowls and platters, natural edge bowls, bowl design, hollow vessels
Ron Lindsay Any topic including hollow turning freehand
Jim Rinde Anything to do with using and turning resins, turning goblets, hollow turning with a boring bar with/without a laser, cooking wood, and multi-axis turning
Gary Toro Anything you want to make
