Start time 6.45pm
Our meeting this week 30th March 2023, is all about end grain turning, it’s being handled by Errol Levings and he has arranged for 4 other turners and himself to man all the lathes.
End grain turning needs to be approached from a completely different way to that of face grain turning, no doubt Errol and those involved on the lathes will be demonstrating and discussing some of the changes in approach that’s required.
The range of items that include some end grain turning may surprise you, it includes most types of boxes, goblets, small pots and various natural edged turnings that are made from a whole log. Looking back through our archives I have found a few examples of end grain turnings, whether or not we see some more of these types of things being made at this meeting we will have to wait and see.
Here are some examples,
Whether or not we see anything along the lines of the examples I have shown or not, I’m sure the turners will give you all an insight into end grain turning.
We are hoping for a large turnout, the raffles will be on sale as usual and coffee will be available for a 50p donation. Hope to see you all there.
