Binh Pho is coming!

I just got word from Eli Avisera that Binh Pho will be coming to Israel for a day and do a day long demo in his studio in Jerusalem! This will happen on May 27 2007.

Binh Pho is a world famous wood turner, who has amazing technique for creating very thin walled turnings and then adding to them piercing and color with an air brush, until today I've only seen him in pictures. This should be exciting!

For more details you can go to Eli's website, there is a phone number to call and reserve a place for yourself!

I definitely plan on being there, and probably will post afterwards on my experience.

וקצת תוכן בעברית לחרטים העבריים שמעדיפים את שפת הקודש

ביום ראשון ה 27.5 יגיע לארץ ליום האומן הידוע בין פו ליום הדגמות של הטכניקות שלו בחריטה ו"קישוט", מומלץ בחום
לפרטים כדאי לגשת לאתר של אלי אביסרה ולהתקשר לטלפון המופיע שם ולשמור לעצמכם מקום. מספר המקומות מוגבל.

Darrell's Design Questions...

I don't have much to contribute to this post, not being much of a turner yet, but I like what Darrell is doing on his blog, and how he's showing his thought process combined with the actual work done on the lathe.

Also I really liked how the project is turning out (and the Ash hollow form is just beautiful)

So I thought I'd point you at his blog...
