Ken Haines, a resident of San Diego, California, is a frequent visitor to Kauai and the Kauai Woodturners Club is honored to have him as one of our members. Ken formerly worked as a project manager with the Dept. of Defense and is currently a woodturning instructor at Palomar College. Ken specializes in spindle turning, producing decorative objects including eggs and tops. In his demonstration he went through the process he has used to produce literally hundreds of such items. In the final photo, he proudly shows one of his creations to club VP John Kirby who declared it "just tops".
Ken's fantastic work can be viewed on the San Diego Woodturners website: sdwt.org.
