Woodturning has been an art since around 1300 BC when the Egyptians first developed a two-person lathe, but it’s only been popular in the United States for the last few decades. This hour on Focus, we’ll talk about woodturning and the satisfaction of making something tangible.

Tim Yoder discovered woodturning while working as a television producer. When he started, he says he tried to, unsuccessfully, teach himself how to make a turned bowl. It was when he got involved with his local woodturning club that he learned the trade. When his station was thinking up a new show, he pitched an idea for one to do with his new hobby. For the first half of this hour on Focus, host Jim Meadows talks with Yoder about working with wood, being thrust on camera and making mistakes on national television.

We'll also hear this hour from Mike Van Pelt, lead instructor for the CU Woodshop. The woodshop is the brainchild of a group of hobbyists who dreamed up a woodworking wonderland known as the “Dreamshop.” Meadows talks with Van Pelt about teaching woodworking and the importance of passing on something tangible.

    for a child to learn and that’s important aspect
    love to my wife I was joking though she’s lucky I have
    I have groupies who are 75 year old man about


    what’s the saying catch me you been in TV a long time but I guess it would turning is it
    is a relatively new activity for you how did you get into it and how do you get on TV
    TV with live in in the working in button commercial in public television
    Kroger 30 years and when I first start working at Rogers State University
    public TV station will work now I did a show called expressions were produced shot
    shot if I had a host and we go find people who expressed in Felton many different ways
    and one day we did a show on Ron Fleming who the local woodturner here but also


    also known worldwide and he was one of pioneers of wood turning in that it would
    he would turn a vessel like a bowl vase with carbine
    Harbor and his nature as his inspiration for the design wall
    set my whole career all I’ve done is video so no working
    commercial TV at the CBS affiliate I would work all day on something last a minute
    minute 30 and it was here and on and yeah I want to ward things like that
    can’t hang out video tape on the wall in show someone some watching Ron


    make this piece of wood into this beautiful shape and I realize all the Sun that thing
    thing is going out with him that single set on a table people walk by
    Wow contributed that it’s almost like on Sunday religious experience realize
    all the sudden that’s a tangible legacy there and it was awful
    really need really called me and I think within a week I went out bottle lathe tools and started
    just rolling wood shop and I just wanted to say right now we walk
    we welcome your calls and emails in focus Evo questions about woodturning may be your own


    experiences with working with would you can call in and talk to a girl
    talk to tame your in also talk to my friend pelted 1 800 2229
    29455 that’s toll free 1 800 222 w
    email us at wilderness talk it Illinois
    you um now the woodshed the witchery you do is it
    is it very different from what I run Fleming was doing yeah uh
    joke about it with the show with Vinny workshop what we do now with other woodturning


    kind of cancer are product be the gateway drug
    yeah we do the simple projects with you so complicated one but mostly the hope
    purpose of the show is the show that this isn’t that scary it isn’t that hard and anyone
    can do it and then once we get those people who dat there they get really into
    is there a buncha turners out there horse Ohio level that
    there’s no limit what you can do with her ron has a piece of the White House
    election and a couple other people live in my own club have pieces of the White House


    election so right now my stuff is in the permanent wife
    collections I’m hoping one day to get a little bit higher with it now I’m trying to
    really wrap my mind around this thinking of the chair legs I was making as a kid of course
    horse things which are severely symmetrical objects
    made of wood turning um not all like that at all
    set at all and um what am I missing Harrison how would turning work
    works well if you’re absolutely right with the same matter that is the majority


    of what woodturners do they put a piece of wood on the lays the lathe
    lathe actually hold on you can and Spencer you simply have a tool
    you have the sharpest cutting pee and you put it up on arrest in Anderson
    is the tool jelly to the would you take away the would anyone up with the b******* for a vase
    shape or a honey dipper things like that but then there other people
    people who are taking that instead of mounting a piece of wood do it mountain
    turning in a movie on one in the pill to help for something


    Alabama turn on how to balance part is really more complicated
    complicated explain the what you see if I can I see that’s pretty easy
    okay have how to know how complex is your as as your own attempts cotton is
    cancer um I’ve done I try to Devil in a little bit
    everything and I’m definitely master of none a just looking at the show
    shells right here I’ve got the a ornamental Holiday bill worth
    what’s two pieces of wood one pieces card after you turn it up while I kick it


    my complication I love the most is like turning ugly wood
    piece of wood that has a rod side to order something like that so when it starts
    expanding your to Lexie skipping across s voice turning air have the time
    but what I get to do at that point I get the reveal the beauty what nature actually made inside
    wood and I’m kind of justice system to get out alive jesters clarify
    mental picture here is the wood always rotating a rotating an offense
    speed when you’re working on it is winter It’s Always rotating


    the bigger the pizza would the more lobsided it is a slower you have the lake
    the lace fit and little tiny things like a wither
    ink pen and pencil pen kit and you turn the barrel off the pill
    and that you have been in upper to 3000 revolutions per minute
    Nevada big chocolate on the way that I was trying to get rust out
    taking off the park in Inola to make it smooth out of shape
    im I have a spinning at 150 RB in a minute


    2 fast you can have a very exciting time watching that people would like raw sex shop
    now I’m wondering I’ve seen some pieces of what
    what would I get a now come from wood turning which just look incredible delicate
    bowls and things like that and I’m just trying to imagine
    how its done without use the whole thing shattering apart while you’re working on
    patience and persistence practice the 3 P’s
    you definitely have to have sharp tool and


    the one differences if I was a woodworker I have a table saw a bandsaw
    and I push the weather this place I can do a lot of wood that blade
    before having light with wood turning you actually have a grinder that you take your tools
    tool to and you sharpen the edges tool well every
    305 10 minutes when you’re turning you need to go back and sharp
    very very sharp tool well I just take what I call feathers of wood
    it’s almost like it float in the air you take an upset just fine little bit of wood


    um I have myself right now a little goblet I turn a few years ago
    only 4 inches tall and a cup the part of the cup
    Cup in the foot only bad happen twice but the stem on it is the rest of it
    4 inches and it is probably 1/16 of an inch wife so
    so you can do with delicate work with it what’s wrong with it

    is catching the museum in a college voice and just thinking this is really a
    Leah craft that that that that that that that the love people love very deeply
    yes it’s the analogy I make is if I have a bad


    bad day at work and I need to blow off steam n stuff
    test the best as a woodworker I can’t run out build
    bookshelf in one team but is with her I can go out and make a
    KS coop for my wife Coffee Bean you know and 30
    30 minutes to go and make a complete project come out at and Cicero
    and it’s just a release you know you get to get all that out of you and as opposed to being
    fractions of an inch in being very specific in careful how you make a cat


    close enough is good enough cuz I want to know what you’re after
    your after they’re going to see the finished product can go yet exactly where do it I’m wondering on
    on on on your TV work because you haven’t been woodturning that long
    doing it from childhood whatever rice NYS I guess you have even been in front of the camera
    the camera that long did you think that affected how you approach the program spread
    beretta some of the other maker TV shows up there exactly because I think we started doing a show
    turning about 10 years witches it’s about time but


    but at the same time there are some people who do this for a complete living
    40 to 60 70 hour week job working for public TV station is it
    what is the wood turning with the weekend evening and
    I realize that there was a voice missing in the wood turning around to wear
    we had to get people start to get people interested we had to make it
    that’s why they weren’t overwhelmed ur or or scared of trying to do
    project an actual think my lack of being such an expert in


    inserting maybe a little more protein because I make mistakes on camera
    camera and I leave them in the show because you can learn how to do it right
    try to let you see somebody doing wrong once in awhile and I guess I am a pro at that
    now that you’re also doing these workshops 11 how have those been working
    working out to the TV work so I love doing workshop because it is a minute ago
    is there still is no replacement for standing next to a truck
    instructor and having a person say just deliver this tool that there’s a thing with the light


    what’s the latest we call the dance you literally have to sway your body from side to side
    how to make certain that you might be working on a hobbit which is this the end
    embellishment which is only a quarter inch wide but you literally are swing in your body probably
    lease a foot have to to feet and that doesn’t really late sometimes on
    I’m fine, because of the angle a cami can’t tell how far someone to move
    what’s happening with the tool time and yeah I
    yeah I love doing hands on in and the truth is I always come out of burning something to myself
