Ron Clemmons and George Thompson compare work.

Hosted jointly by Quesnel Woodtruners Guild and the Prince George Woodturners Guild, The Round Up seminar and workshop, held at local woodturner Vern Richardson’s shop, saw a great turnout of more than 30 woodturners from as far away as Terrace, Prince George, Williams Lake and Kamloops.

Professional woodturner, Bruce Campbell from Vancouver gave excellent demonstrations and tips on both safety and technique in woodturning.

“He complimented our group, despite being relatively new, saying we stacked up very well against more established groups,” Quesnel woodturner Bob Lebeck said.

Campbell also spoke about the business of crafting in general and woodturning in particular.

Other demonstrators included Ron Clemmons, Art Betke and Ken Turner from Prince George and Quesnel guild president George Thompson.

“Everyone came away with new ideas and renewed enthusiasm for woodturning and we look forward to another such event in the future,” Thompson said.
