Kids Day at Barb's Barn

Click on thumbnail for full size image

Saturday, June 9th was "Kids Day at the Barn"

The instructor for the day was Bob Rosand with Jake Debski and Jim Hilburger helping

The day was all about getting kids started in woodturning

Each student had a lathe and a helper

Bob had several projects for the students to learn and then do

Part of the learning was sharpening

Bob walked through the sequence for each project and then the students worked on their own

One of the projects was an oil lamp

Ed Jolls, always a big supporter of the Barn efforts, stops by

Bob gives Ed one of his ornaments as a small "thank you"

Later in the day, Jim Hilburger does a demo of turning tops

Jim shows the kids the steps he uses to turn a top in under 2 minutes

His top turning is always a big hit at the fund raising events

Over the course of the day, each student has plenty of hands on time

The class was supported by a grant from the AAW

It was a great day for some young turners getting a great start in turning
