September 10, 2022 Workshop

This workshop covers techniques for making a unique multi-axis, spiral handled scoop:

In this class, we will make a multipurpose solid wood dipping scoop ladle. The axis change between the scoop bowl and the handle makes this scoop unique, allowing for a deeper reach with optimal fill.

Perfect to use with top open containers. The recipe of form and function will be followed on our projects while not overlooking the "blingability" with a vine twist handle. A beautiful natural food-safe finish will assure this scoop will become your favorite and a popular family heirloom.

TIME: 9am -- 3pm. LOCATION Club Shop.

Instructor Lan Brady is a member of the Chapel Hill Woodturners. He began his woodturning career at the age of 5 as a woodturner's apprentice. The following year, his parents decided he needed an elementary school education creating a 43 year hiatus from the job/hobby. In 2003, he picked up a Skew and was making shavings once again. After turning small art pieces that ended up in 24 different countries around the world, Lan landed right back at the beginning with making treenware. Most of his work is now used for reenactment celebrations from the renaissance era through WW1. FIND OUT MORE ABOUT LAN BRADY ON OUR WEBSITE.

We had a great day in the workshop today. David, Indu. Jim and David all made scoops that will hold water.  Our fifth member(Terry) dropped in  after lunch, and will try his hand at a later date.  Sure don’t want to forget the fantastic lunch provided by Jennifer.

Thanks to all who participated ,  Lan
