The Magic of Eccentric Artistry

November 14, 2019 – November 17, 2019

James Duxbury

Using standard woodturning tools and equipment, students in this workshop learn the fundamentals of multi-axis turning and add a new dimension to their woodturning skills. You will discover the foundation of off-set turning and the necessary layout, planning, wood selection, and mountings. They include faceplates, chucks and standard point centers to achieve the desired designs for a variety of pieces. Participants will create imaginative boxes, vases, spiral illusions and a unique assortment of interesting pieces. Basic woodturning skills are required.


James Duxbury is a woodturner and inventor from Graham, North Carolina. Known for his kaleidoscopes, all his turnings are unique, and he seldom turns the same item twice. As the inventor of particulate dust respirators, he holds two U.S. Patents and his company, Duxterity LLC, markets the Resp-O-Rator™, a filtered dust mask. He is the recipient of numerous awards.
