Our latest training evening was on Thursday 28th July 2022, there were due to be 4 tutors along with 4 pupils, however one of the pupils failed to turn up leaving one of the tutors with nothing to do, there was some doubt about one of the pupils before the session started because he had indicated he might be late, we did give him the benefit of some time to turn up if he indeed was only going to be late, but he was a no show!Continue reading “Report on our training evening 28-07-2022.”
I took an impromptu video of this presentation by Alec and Errol about the options for woodturning finishes. They cover quite a lot of very useful information.
Unfortunately, the sound for the first 10 minutes or so has an annoying pinging noise (my phone) before I sorted it out for the rest of the video. All audio is captured by the phone, so please make some allowances to the quality as it varies quite a a lot with background noise, and various lathe and extractors running.
This is the associated post for the video
Part 2 is scheduled for the 29th September and a recording may or may not be added depending on the feedback this one gets…

Our latest training evening was on Thursday 14th July 2022, there were to be 4 pupils and 4 tutors, however one of the pupils had to cancel and one of the tutors came down with Covid, this still left 3 and 3 and it was too late to organise any replacement pupils or tutors. We decided to go with what we have, the 3 tutors arrived as arranged but only 2 of the pupils turned up, John Ruickbie’s pupil failed to turn up, that left us with Errol Levings tutoring Liam Comfort, and me (Alec Mutch) tutoring Gareth Jones.Continue reading “Report on our training evening 14-07-2022.”
Our meeting this week on Thursday 7th July 2022 was all about finishing materials and their use, the meeting was organised by Errol Levings and was to have 4 people doing presentations on different aspects of finishing.
