Return of Saturn:  Turning the Saturn Bowl.  The demonstration will start with a short presentation of some of Jason's work as well as a preview of the day’s project.  The demonstration will be focused on Saturn bowl. He will turn a simple bowl with a wide thin rim and use an ultra-thin parting tool to cut the rim in such a way that is free from the bowl and is able to rotate.  This bowl will then be held in a way so that the wide rim of the bowl can be offset using simple home-made jigs in order to create rings that are interactive and can rotate but not come apart.  This demonstration is an intermediate to advanced demonstration, Significant time will be spent on the basics as well as lathe safety.  The audience will be challenged to figure out how to simultaneously solve multiple problems before I demonstrate my solution.  Most of the demo is easy enough for beginning turners but the overall project is challenging enough to keep even the most experienced turner interested.
