Mark St. Leger Demonstrates for CMW July 16, 2016
Mark comes to CMW from his home in Pearisburg, VA where he has lived and worked since moving there in 1992. He has been working with wood since he was a young boy, helping his father who is a cabinetmaker and turner. Mark took woodshop for a year in high school where he first turned on a lathe. After high school Mark served a four-year apprenticeship and became a Journeyman Carpenter. Over time his interests moved towards the finer aspects of building which enabled him to be an accomplished cabinetmaker as well. After working years in the field of building, Mark was asked if he would consider teaching woodworking to high school students. For 24 years he taught at a rural high school and enjoyed it. Through the years, with the help of very caring contributors, Mark and his students built up a virtually empty shop into a fine woodworking facility. It is set up for a full range of carpentry, cabinetmaking, woodturning and carving. He is now retired from teaching at the school. Mark's interest in woodturning began when he was visited by his father who brought a weed pot and tagua nut vessel which he had turned. Thirty years later Mark still enjoys exploring the endless possibilities of woodturning with enthusiasm and creativity. Mark is an Honorary Lifetime Member of the Blue Ridge Woodturners Club in Virginia. He has served that club as president, vice-president and activities coordinator. He has also hosted their club meetings at the high school shop on a monthly basis. He is also a member of the American Association of Woodturners where he has served as a member of the Board of Directors. Mark has been an active demonstrator and workshop leader for turning clubs, along with demonstrating at many regional and national symposia including our North Carolina Woodturning Symposium. He has demonstrated for CMW in 2000, 2003, 2009, 2012 and 2016. In 2009 and 2012 he taught one-day hands-on classes for CMW. Mark is currently on the faculty of Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts in TN, Appalachian Center for Crafts in TN, Peters Valley Craft Center in NJ and the John C. Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, NC. He also teaches woodturning courses for a local college. Learn more about Mark at: http://www.markstleger.com/ Mark's previous demo in 2012: http://www.carolinamountainwoodturners.org/articles/415 Following this demo Mark will be doing a hands-on class for CMW on Sunday, July 17, 2016. When sanding Mark goes from 150 to 600 grit. Mark began the session making a thin stem spin top. Curly ash was used for the disc and Blackwood for the stem. A 2MT jig was made from maple. For the stem Mark used a 2 ½" long x 9/16" thick piece that he carved the corners off so it would fit into the headstock spindle. It was turned into a cylinder with the roughing gouge. The distal end was turned to less than 1/16" thick. Mark continued to turn the stem toward the headstock in a continuous thin taper. Mark then turned a sphere. A standard drive center and live center were used. A 3 ¾" x 3 ¾" x 4 ¾" piece of wood was used. Mark then discussed his tool handles.
