MY WORK: What I do best is teach woodturning techniques to turners at all skill levels. I put together an exciting program of methods, techniques, tips-n-tricks, and concepts. The more methods and ideas we are exposed to, the more we expand our horizons. Sharing is the most important asset we have. To see my turning work go to the galleries menu above.
WHAT YOU WILL SEE DURING THE DEMONSTRATION
BENEFITS FOR CLUBS AND INDIVIDUALS
Cheam Woodturners UK host Lyle Jamieson demonstration On April 12th, 2018
Cheam Woodturners Guild hosted a demo by Lyle Jamieson. Cheam members and guests from five other clubs, gathered at the Mathematics Faculty in Epsom College, for what was to be a UK first – a remote live demo. The demonstration went well, with no audio or video dropouts during the whole two hours. Lyle was able to see and hear the audience. We in turn, had high quality audio and video through the College computers and projector. Lyle’s demo topic was the hollowing process and covered all the core elements one needed to know – all of which held our attendee’s attention for the full two hours. We posed a wide range of questions to Lyle all of which he gave full answers to. According to Cheam, it was almost as if Lyle Jamieson was in the room. The benefits are clear. The demonstrator has a good interaction with the audience and does not have the rigors of travel, setup, and take down. What’s more, major names on the international woodturning circuit can be brought in without the hassle of travel and accommodation expenses. And best of all, there’s no sweeping up afterwards! ~ David Buskell
From Joy Szott, from East Surrey Woodturning Guild
They think it was probably the first of its kind in the UK and I’m sure it will not be the last. The demo viewing was held at Epsom College on a large screen where we could see and hear Lyle working in his own workshop 3000 miles away…. a strange concept. He could hear and see us, and we could ask him questions. There was no noise from his lathe and no dust either…. wonderful! He used various cameras at his end showing the work at different angles. Sadly, the demo was over in just two hours and I think most of us would have loved a bit more time……so maybe another club will soon take up the idea and organize something similar and throw the doors open to neighboring clubs too. It would be well worth the visit. Anyone interested in looking Lyle up can find info at www.lylejamieson.com. He also does demos on YouTube which are well worth a watch, with good close-up pictures of gouge positions against wood.
