Ron Brown and his neighbor Chris Woodall treated the audience by demonstrating really fast ways to create hollow lidded acorns. After rounding the blanks, Ron used a forstner bit to hollow out the inside of the acorn cap. He then switched to the bottom and repeated the process using a core box router bit to create the hollowed base. He then went on to shape the outside, fit the top and bottom, and then used a knurling tool to create a texture on the cap. Chris then showed how to use thread chasing tools to create an acorn with a screw-on top. Based on the group interest in threading wood, Ron and Chris agreed to pursue development of a future fee based class dedicated to teaching wood threading. After details are worked out, the newsletter and web site will contain information about the class.
