John has a very nice and well organized shop – he is an superb wood turner and has done some fantastic crafts which he displayed a few of. High-quality tools and many jigs to assist with his woodturning, particularly his intricate segmented bowls and vessels.
John was a great host and did a great job explaining his shop. We adjusted the time to one hour (3 – 4 pm) which worked well.
Shop turnout was poor – only 8 people as noted below:
John Lowder, Craig Thompson, Jack Collins, Fred Walters, Mike Guthrie, Joe Steele, Scott Logan, Dick Meyer
— Craig Thompson
Following are some pictures of his shop showing his ultra-efficient use of space, sophisticated dust control, and full array of woodworking tools, most mobile.
