President's Challenge for the BAWA Picnic:

“Turn the Sphere, Ball, Orb, Circular Object of Your Dreams!”  In other words, whether you are a first-time or a veteran sphere-turner, make a sphere or a creation involving a sphere and tell us all about it at the picnic.  There are no constraints or limitations except that it be made primarily on the lathe.  Big or small; wood, acrylic, epoxy, or something else; segmented or solid; carved, painted or just plain wood - you name it, we want to see it!  And the awards?  Everyone who brings an entry will receive 5 Wood Raffle tickets to be claimed at any of this Fall’s monthly meetings.  Have fun and I look forward to seeing the pictures.

P.S.  If you’re looking for some guidance on turning a sphere, a great place to start is with Jim Rodgers’ two videos on the topic.  You can find them on the BAWA Website: go to Resources, then to Videos, and then to the Jim Rodgers Videos page.
