Live Virtual Woodturning Event

AAW Presents: Lyle Jamieson
Turning a Thin-walled Goblet

Saturday, March 18, 2023
3:00 p.m. Eastern Time

AAW Presents a live, virtual woodturning demonstration with Lyle Jamieson. The goblet is a good vehicle to teach spindle turning and to demonstrate the fundamentals of hollow form turning. Lyle guarantees you will learn some new perspectives, and get an understanding of tool control, chucking issues, support problems, vibration issue, grain orientation, carbide cutter use, hollowing in stages, and laser measuring techniques.  Come and see techniques for both outside and inside of hollow form turning.  Discover easy and safe techniques for all skill levels!

You'll learn:

  • how to get clean cuts and conquer vibration and support issues
  • understand how grain orientation can make or break a project  
  • learn about tool control with traditional and carbide tools

About the Presenter 

Lyle Jamieson’s first experience with turning came as a child. Mentored by his father, he did all kinds of woodworking, but in 1988 the woodworking tools got left behind...for turning.

An accomplished teacher of woodturning technique, Lyle concentrates on the process of turning in contrast to the product. Lyle’s philosophy: What is the difference between a beginning turner and an advanced turner? It is what they do with the basics.

Lyle is the inventor/creator of the Jamieson Hollow Form Turning System, which permits for safer, in-control hollowing. Also a sculptor, Lyle’s turned figurative sculptures are in private and public collections around the world, including the Detroit Institute of Art and the University of Michigan Museum of Art.

Currently, Lyle is also doing Live Interactive Remote Demonstrations IRDs, over the internet from his studio for club meetings and individuals or other teaching opportunities, since 2014. Learn more here.
