Rumson-Fair Haven High School

   

Thanks to Bruce Perlmutter, Sal Straniero and Pete Laudati for speaking and teaching woodturning at the Rumson-Fair Haven H.S. They were non stop form 8:30 AM to 2:45PM. No break for lunch, just turning non-stop and teaching the students how to turn.

 

Bruce spent most of his time teaching bowl turning and let the students use bowl gouges and scrapers to complete their own bowls. Pete demonstrated how to turn tops and pens. Several students turned tops using chatter tools and sharpies to color them.  Sal turned a couple of ring holders and gave them to the students, check out the attached picture of the girl with hers. She actually skipped her next class to stay with Sal until he finished it.

 

They were just so excited to walk away with something. The term I heard them use often was that "This is dope!", which in English means it's great.The teachers there are great, Very knowledgeable and supportive.They asked if we can come back next year. Looks like Bruce started something good for the club.

 

A special thanks to Bruce for arranging this demo. This is exactly what our club is about. Working with the youth and introducing them to woodturning.
