Show and Tell

Demos by Joe Wagner

Intro by Joe. He has turned most of his life. He turned on his first lathe at 7 or 8 years of age. When he was in school he would turn with the teacher. He has taught classes for the last 25 or so years. He has over 110 projects that he has done that he has created and made the patterns for. He keeps an example each one for a future reference. He has collected over 24 lathes, which includes one he built himself. Joe designed and built his own shop, which has many special features both upstairs and downstairs. States he still has not been able to move everything in from his storage unit to supply his shop. He states that he does purchase items in bulk to make it better for working in the shop.
