Hans Weissflog, from Germany, visited the Carolina Mountain Woodturners and shared his skills and knowledge.

Morning session started with Hans showing many of his delicate intricately grooved pieces. He then turned to the lathe to make his Saturn Box. A lidded box with a ring around the girth that rotates.

Afternoon session included Hans making his Spider Box. He shared how he makes his tools to allow him to delicately cut the grooves. When finished and looking from the inside of the lids top, you can see a spider. He had plenty of time remaining to make his Drunken Box. A lidded box that wobble when rolled.

A DVD of this demonstration is available in the Carolina Mountain Woodturners Library.
