Come to the Laurens Library for a live wood lathe demonstration. Van Matthews will bring and set up his lathe outside the library and will show onlookers how ordinary chunks of wood can be transformed into beautiful and useful items. Safety, tools and lathes will be discussed along with various types of wood, wood grains and finishes. Some of Van’s finished items will be on display. This is scheduled to be an outdoor event, but in the event of bad weather, this program will be held inside the library’s public meeting room.
